How ACTA would affect you: FAQ

Summary: With SOPA and PIPA shelved, ACTA was somewhat ignored. Donít know what ACTA is? Donít worry: you werenít meant to. Hereís what you need to know.

Just because SOPA & PIPA are currently shelved, don't forget about the "elephant in the room".

ACTA is rather more like a 'trade agreement' between countries.

And some say that ACTA is way worse than SOPA. and sadly my country was one of the countris that signet in secret last week. I mean all this under the pretense to stop piracy.

A little of topic but stil. you never see articles like this anywhere.. thats strange.
Illegal downloaders spend MORE on music than those who obey the law

Pretty sure we can't stop ACTA since it's an international treaty that has already been "passed". I thought that's why there hasn't been big news about trying to protest against it.

Australia's signed it too.
Our politicians "bend over backwards" to suck up to the US.

Indeed, that is strange.

Of course that doesn't suit the narrative, that piracy is depriving the Corporations of "trillions of dollars" of profit every year.
Don't believe it, work out the fines levied x alleged offences (as claimed by RIAA & MPAA).

It's like the surveys that show atheists know more about the Bible, than believers do (i.e. can correctly answer more questions).

None of these laws are about stopping piracy.
They're about entrenching power/privilege, silencing dissent and preventing the citizens from being able to organise opposition to Corporate and Government policies/practices.

Yes, Canada signed it. Plus, if it wasn't enough, Harper wants to pass the bill C-10 which is... a surveillance bill...

FU Harper. I hate you.

Let's see if ACTA can censor this message because I hate my federal government.

I couldn't get a grip on exactly how to view ACTA. This is the first that I've heard of it, and the article was not precise enough for me to feel that I comprehend the weight of the agreement. I have no problem with the government(s) attempting to deal with criminal aspects of the use of the internet, but I'm firmly against any law, treaty or agreement, either at home or internationally, that places RIAA or MPAA or any other private institutions in a position of snooping on the public, or making unsubstantiated charges on nothing more than their word.

From the sound of it, it doesn't really matter what I think, because it is going into effect regardless, and soon, because the date given is only a little over a year from now. Still, we should demand full disclosure of all aspects of this or any other legal processes like it. If the government won't protect us, then we will have to protect ourselves.
