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.

I checked your links out! My jaw dropped and eyes are wide open in astonishment. I clicked on your ACTA link to Wikipedia in the “Background” section. Regarding in the first paragraph what all ACTA’s scope includes, then in the second paragraph what the treaty could restrict pretty much says it all. We are about to lose our Freedom on the Internet…Globally. All behind closed doors…ugh :/
I almost feel we need a perpetual sticker or banner to post illustrating it’s not forgotten – and we are still concerned….
I wonder if WordPress would consider reinstating the little Stop Censorship banner for year round use?
