Legal We have some very, very good news for Europeans (which happens to include myself): we have the European Parliament on our sides when it comes to battling ACTA. If you may recall, ACTA is basically an attempt by the US to impose upon the rest of the world draconian measures like three strikes laws and the DMCA. All parties within the European Parliament have together put forth a resolution that would effectively tackle ACTA.

Three strikes in the USA?

Where do we have that here? We don't. This is a European concept that started with the French, I believe. We don't have that here. There isn't any law that states that.

Don't blame us for your own problems please. You do a lot of things there that we consider to be bad. Should we mention those?

A lot of what we see happening in Europe is being excused as coming from the USA when it's not. At times, that just an excuse for doing something distasteful that your governments want to do anyway.
