Just signed as well. This ACTA bill is pure EVIL.

The internet was created for information and entertainment.

Here in Croatia people protested in many cities and Anonymous (in Croatia) hacked the President of Croatia, so that he knows how many feel, because he said something like that ACTA is not all that bad, although from what I've seen he's not that much into it (but then he should have not speak).

President and his stuff here in Croatia, believe it or not are using Ubuntu on all their machines except one with Winblows, as a necessary evil. So when Croatia becomes EU member next year and when we will have to decide, I don't think there will be a lot of discussion.

Fsck that greedy ACTA b4st4rdz!

Don't know much about ACTA or SOPA but I know it's a bad idea. Does this bill have to do with people not buying music and videos like before and the RIAA MPAA folks are losing money and want to punish people by putting them in jail if they access or link to these mediums without permissions or without purchasing them?

Because they're not tech savvy and don't know the difference between internet and intranet and don't have anything better to do.

signed up too.

You know the answer, and if you don't become a political and find out. But, I won't get into that.

Yeah, me too. It's full of hackers and crackers, pædos and weirdos, commies, bleeding-hearts, and unwashed anarchists. Ban electricity, that'd stop 'em!
