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.

For one thing, in Europe, freedom of the press is considered to be secondary to "privacy" whatever that means. In the US, Google would never have been convicted for that video having been put up, even though Google removed it as soon as they were told about it.

That concerns us here, where we believe that freedom of the press is of paramount importance, though we do consider privacy to be important as well.
