Default ACTA is about to succeed

Sorry to those people who thought the SOPA/PIPA threads weren't enough, but I felt the need to share this with you guys.

So here's the deal

Begleitet von heftigen Protesten hat die Europäische Union einen internationalen Pakt gegen Produktpiraterie unterzeichnet. Das Handelsabkommen zur Abwehr von Fälschungen wurde in Tokio von Vertretern der EU und von 22 der 27 Mitgliedsstaaten unterschrieben, teilte das japanische Außenministerium mit. Deutschland war lediglich aus formalen Gründen noch nicht dabei, sagte ein Sprecher des Bundesjustizministeriums. Nach der Unterzeichnung muss das Abkommen noch vom Europaparlament und den nationalen Parlamenten gebilligt werden.
What this text says in tl;dr version:

- ACTA got signed by 22 of 27 memberstates of the EU (plus other states around the world)
- Excessive protests have been going on apparently
- ACTA has yet to be permitted by the european parlament and national parlaments


Here's a "more english" article

How could Obama openly be against SOPA / PIPA and then sign in agreement of ACTA? It's like he just backstabbed us in the face.

So a few days back, the SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) bill was killed due to overwhelming criticism and extreme lack of support. This is wonderful news and riot has indeed helped spread awareness of this. However, there i a less known, international, more aggressive SOPA, called ACTA (Anti Counterfeiting Trade Agreement) this not only applies to a country, it applies to any country who wishes to get involved. So far the US and the EU are already involved and this will have an even bigger effect than SOPA. This law has been discussed out of public view as to avoid public outcry. If ACTA passes, it will not only block sites, it will also block users who violate it. Your entire family might get BANNED FROM THE INTERNET for copyright infringement that happens on a day to day basis. ACTA also removes the safety of internet providers from liability of their clients, meaning that your internet provider might get shut down for someone using their services and infringing copyright. Be warned, ACTA not only bans users and websites, it also legalizes the government to monitor your online activities without any sort of reason whatsoever. SOPA and PIPA is dead, but the worst is yet to come. We must bring down ACTA as we did with SOPA.
Maybe this sums things up a bit and yeah, technically rip internet

Too bad if this happens you can expect worse than any public outcry.

Let me get banned for downloading an MP3 off of Mediafire and I will make Columbine look like a day at Disney.

Hey want my new SM pack? I'll ship you my USB with it on it, or come to my house.
