After SOPA, PIPA I found out about ACTA
Saturday, January 21, 2012
Now, here's something else I want to bring attention to the world.
Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement
Here's a video to illustrate the point.
Now here's the thing we are too late. The act is already signed and passed on 1st October 2011. We're screwed, have you wondered why Youtube says "This video is not available in your country" ? Now you know why.
Here's the other thing.
Singapore also signed on to it. So... basically, if you know how to petition against it, do it. And spread the word around. You've definitely seen cases from your friends who got fined for downloads and stuffs. It could go up to thousands.
Honestly, the internet is at war right now. People need to know it.
And how the fuck can they pass a law like this in secret? What the fuck seriously. As a geek I'm really annoyed at the situation at hand, and annoyed that I didn't find out about this early. Oh fuck this shit.
