I must apologise for getting political again, but freedom on the internet is once again threatened. The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement or ACTA is absolutely as dangerous, if not more so, than SOPA and PIPA. Like SOPA, ACTA could throttle freedom of expression of the internet and make it much easier for the corporate media to literally sue internet companies out of existence. It also encourages ISPs to essentially spy on their users, just in case they are violating the agreement.
Today several protests against ACTA are taking place in Europe. If you value your freedom on the internet, you might want to take part in some way as well!
