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.


Sounds like a good thing to me. Our so-called freedom of the press has gotten to the point where privacy doesn't exist anymore, and many of these slimeball reporters will gladly watch people die, or get blown apart, or undergo the worst trauma of their lives just so they can get their precious story. The press could do with a bit less freedom where privacy is concerned, especially when the person they're going after tells them to back the **** off and they don't.
