why is everybody saying ACTA is a more secret and new threat?

ACTA HAS BEEN AROUND FOR YEARS

sopa and pipa weren't shit compared to ACTA. god knows why they passed ACTA when it's WORSE. did they alter what ACTA stated or what? from what i'm seeing, no, they didn't alter shit. so why is ACTA passing now and wasn't passing back then?

They've talked about it in secrecy for years. It only went viral recently when the whole load of countries around the global signed it, and the voting for it held in Poland was made publicly popular by protesters and Anonymous

Early sign of the ACTA apocalypse: Youtube channel TheOSTation has been terminated due to multiple claims of copyright infringement when clearly visible in each video's description was attributed copyright and distribution credits, along with the boilerplate "No copyright infringements are intended. The sharing of VGM does not destroy the video game industry, as indeed it helps it grow."

I don't disagree or anything, but its still infringing copyrights whether it's intended or not. That doesn't really make sense. Uploading other peoples videos on youtube is kind of annoying imo.

But random songs out of old games where nobody is ever going to buy the soundtrack seems fine to me. Nobody gains anything by removing those videos.

You guys really need to read about what your protesting first.

SOPA/PIPA passing would have an immediate effect on the internet

ACTA is basically just guidelines for each country to set up their own laws against internet piracy. The whole goal of ACTA is to harmonize internet laws globally so there are stupid places with loopholes or international issues that no one knows how to resolve.

So? You think a video is annoying, which means nobody in the world should be allowed to view the video? You may not be consciously making that argument, but that's what it comes down to when people try to remove stuff they just don't like. And that kind of approach is what will eventually kill digital freedom.

I don't really think that's what I said at all.

I don't think that's what you said either, but I felt it would be useful to point out that your statement was pretty much the basis of why copyright causes problems in the first place - because people think about how they feel about something rather than whether it helps/hurts in an overall sense.

A little to harsh dude.

But let's look at it this way, if it ever came to someone getting banned they'd try to appeal it and if it got appealed well enough the Supreme Court [should] have a field day telling these people what they did is absolutely wrong.

I think the issue here is that the people in power, have neglected to remember (or care) that everyone has a list of "certain inalienable rights" and it's basically written in our constitution that they can't censor anything or prevent us from doing things that way. (By my understanding of it, which isn't very high.)

The other issue is that companies need to stop fighting illegal downloading. My dad put it this way to me once, "once something is on the internet, it can never be taken off. Everything you put on the internet in short, is always there." Embrace free downloads. Use them to get people to buy merchandise. Produce more material, make the material more unique. The problem of downloading is not only the users (us) the problem is with everyone else as well. I don't encourage free downloading don't get me wrong, we are stealing. But as it is, when an artist who makes more than someone like my mother (who is a server) and is complaining that they're losing money, despite living in their mansion, the world needs to point a finger and laugh at them hysterically.

ACTA will be voted in june and basically doesn't respect european rights.
I hope that the time granted to european deputies to properly examine the treaty will help them to be aware of that. All along with the multiple issues it'll created, may them be on information, freedom of speech, economy, AIDS or medications.

Yess i suppose.
Well if you think about it.. how Lars Ulrich couldn't get his gold plated shark tank bar for his pool.. or how Brittney Spears had to sell her Gulf Stream 4 for the Gulf Stream 3 that doesn't even have a remote control for it's surround sound DVD..

Really makes you feel awful about ever downloading a song.. :/
