SOPA/PIPA, ACTA, TTP: Where does it end?
Hoo, boy. I hadn’t even gotten around to commenting on ACTA, the international Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Act, which was negotiated in virtual secrecy, but now there’s discussion of a new intellectual property chapter for TPP, the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The discussions are — you guessed it — secret. Call me old-fashioned, but to me “secret” means you’re up to no good.
