according to one site, america has already signed with it 2 years ago. this is to stop it in europe, i don't see how it would affect the us if it was stopped in one country. would isp`s really look at everything? how slow would everything go then? and how would they scan everything for things like quotes in a newspaper, sounds fishy to me.

@TheShgn2 with ACTA you loose a bit less than we do. ACTA is legally binding for the european union (so we are done in if it goes through) but it is not for the US. you are optionally screwed if it goes through, but if course the "choice" in "optionally" is not yours :P

if the entertainment industry is truly concerned about piracy, why not go after the overseas producers/sellers of illegal DVDs? sure, its faster and more convenient to download stuff, but counterfeit DVDs take a big chunk of money from the entertainment industry, too. i haven't heard of anyone trying to shut down THAT particular chinese export.
