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.

everyone's still in the sopa pipa mindset so they're using that to try to get acta shut down

@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.

ACTA is being really overspoken. Its not nearly as bad as SOPA or PIPA, and this one actually directly affects me.

Obama and I think China have already signed it, so we've already lost? I wouldn't be surprised if SOPA was just a decoy to distract us while this one slipped through.

"but a few well placed tactical nukes throughout D.C., Virginia and Maryland would be a great start."

Yes a few well placed explosions in the US is a surefire way to stop a European law...

Is it just me? Or does anyone else think a few well placed bullets would fix this poo once and for all?

I just don't get it. None of these acts would have ever been able to stop or limit piracy. The only thing they do is harm legitimate businesses.

Something similar to this I would like to use as an example is DRM. All it did was make it harder and harder for people who bought games legally to play their games. Remember? People without internet connections being unable to register their game, people who didn't uninstall their game properly before they got a new computer couldn't reinstall it. Meanwhile piracy of the games in question went completely and utterly unhindered.

I don't have a statistic for it, but I'd imagine DRM turned a number of people to piracy instead of away from it.

Of course it's not a perfect parallel but for the most part, it's more of the same. It's not going to stop piracy, just hurt legitimate businesses and consumers.

My redemption, redemption lies in your demise.
Rejoice, the age of the fall has begun.
We'll dance as the palaces burn.

The fiends have gagged a generation of pacified fools
Bound by our greed a nation enslaved as corporate tools.
Arise and RAZE the legacy of their lies
To realize that this in itself is an ascension
Towards the day we revolt.
oh, as the seeds you've cast away take hold
War will be born.
Rejoice, the age of the fall has begun
We'll dance as the palaces burn.
A shot gun blast into the face of deceit
You'll gain your just reward.
We'll not rest until the purge is complete
You will reap what you've sown.
My redemption lies in your demise.
In such a world as this does one dare to think for himself?
The paradox of power and peace will destroy itself
To know the truth and live in fear of no man.
To realize that this in itself is an ascension
Toward the day we revolt.
oh, as the seeds you've cast away take hold
War will be born.
Rejoice, the age of the fall has begun
We'll dance as the palaces burn.

whats funny is even Microsoft uses P2P for large file downloads, so does Blizzard, and lots of other large files.

what would you rather, have people sucking down 1+gb of information from your server, or people sucking down 250mb and getting the rest via all the other people who have already downloaded the file? and the users prefer it too, those companies' websites only allow so much bandwidth, while having lots of peers to piggy back off of, you can achieve your maximum download rate.

for example, when I download updates for WoW, if I disable P2P, I get 500kb/sec, when I enable it, I get 1mb/sec.

@lauriloo, get out of your bubble, this goes beyond copyright infringment

When the gov'ment started reading our emails no one cared.
When they put gps trackers on all cell phones by law, no one cared.
When they required search engines to not show results of websites they didn't like no one cared.

Now that you may not get free music everyone all pissed off. You should have paid attention, people.

For the record, 10 years ago I was called a paranoid lunatic. The only way to get rid of Corporate control of government is to overthrow your government. Peacefully or not, your choice. But you can't just say "please with a cherry on top" and expect them to roll over for you.
