Not that the USA hasn't been in on it since it's conception a few years ago but man. I tried to warn everyone about this as it deserves more attention than SOPA ever did.

SOPA was about piracy. ACTA is about content online, even about seeds patents, GENERIC DRUGS, and so on. This can really screw other countries, and us on prescriptions who rely on generic drugs for cheaper prices.

I could go on and on but I'll let you all read this article and the google it for yourselves. I'm STILL appalled that this is NOT blowing up ATS like SOPA did or the Presidential debates or anything.

Sopa blinded us to what was going on which is more of a threat. I've known of this for a few days now and posted about it while it was still NOT passed but only 3 people replied. Three out of hundreds of thousands. This affects you. YOU. In every Country.

Please. Read and take this stuff seriously. We did for SOPA. Why not this when it's far worse?

Hehe well I had no room in the title to name all of the Countries.
I just hope this will get people realizing what's going on. It's too much, too fast, all at once. It's like they turned on a tennis ball machine and set it on mega speed and are laughing while we try to dodge being hit.

Its also too late.

People think they will be able to get parliments to stop this. Judging what the rapporteur is saying this will not be stopped.

This was passed in Romania too.Here in Romania piracy is a ordinary thing everyone does it , it's quite funny.

OP I'm not terribly impressed when any country other than the US passes a draconian law.
In fact I'm not surprised at all, being that almost every other country than the US has been neutered by taking their guns away.
When you control the guns, you control everything else.
So before "they" can make this sort of stuff work in the US they will have to have our guns first, or we will give them our bullets.

i just have one question, since they are bringing in laws to stop this going on at the peasant populations, what laws are they bringing in to stop corruption at the highest levels??

answer: none.
