LXer: Why We Must React to ACTA

Published at LXer:

A new global standard for the enforcement of intellectual monopolies is currently being discussed by representatives of the United States, the European Commission, Japan, Switzerland, Canada, Australia, Korea, Mexico and New Zealand. This new agreement is so important that it must be drawn up in secret, safe from the prying eyes of little people like you and me. Thanks, however, to the indispensable Wikileaks, a discussion paper outlining some of its possible proposals hassurfaced, and from this it is clear that it represents a serious threat to online liberty in general, and to the practice of free software in particular.

I'm aware of it, but I have a feeling they will force it upon everyone no matter what you do. Also, the digg link is broken.

With every new secret totalitarian pact Sauron gains in strength, it's only a matter of time now...
