The agreement seeks to enforce intellectual property rights and combat online piracy and illegal software. But opponents of ACTA claim it goes far beyond the U.S.' doomed SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) legislation and encourages ISPs to police the internet without any legal safeguards.
SOPA is being revised after receiving broad criticism. The ACTA agreement, meanwhile, has been mired in controversy from the beginning due to secrecy imposed by the U.S. and worries that it may not uphold E.U. rules on data privacy.
Outside the E.U., the agreement has so far been signed by the U.S., Australia, Canada, Japan, Morocco, New Zealand, Singapore and South Korea.

Of course the U.S. can sign it. The Constitution is no longer valid, since the U.S. is firmly in bed with the U.N. The U.N. now makes our laws. First, it started with "Free Trade Agreements", and now we're firmly in the grasp of the globalists. Once they have your individual liberty, the chains will come out to keep you there.
