Just a word abut ACTA which is unknown to many. Both SOPA and PIPA are of course not acceptable laws for sure but still a bit of joke compared to ACTA (act created by US which had been signed in secrecy in October by US, Canada, Japan, Australia, etc... and just been signed few days ago in Tokio by most European countries, a total of 31 countries signed ACTA till today. All decisions have been taken in secrecy without public debate.). The major problem of ACTA is that it can (and it will -as we know, the major companies already tried it) ban generic drugs (generic pharmaceuticals), generic seeds, etc... ACTA is far more dangerous than any other recent act. Please check this short video: Say NO to ACTA
Demonstrations will take place all over Europe 11. Feb. 2012. Europeans will fight, check the map how many demonstrations will take place: http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/events/anti-counterfeiting-trade-agreement-acta#protests
P.S.: Steve i hope I have not hijacked your post, I apologize, I saw that the US people do not know very much about ACTA thing and I wish to spread the word, thanks man.
