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.

Will you please stop slandering me? I profess the strict letter of Dutch law, and in doing so, I am being perfectly honest and legal. The act of downloading is not illegal in the jurisdiction I live in and have lived in all my life. You are accusing me of criminal activity (namely, piracy, the act of illegally distributing copyrighted content), even though I have done no such thing, and even though I am not promoting any such activity.

If I were to live in the US, you'd have a point. However, since I do not, will you please respect the law of other countries?

I don't take kindly for being branded a criminal, especially not by someone as clueless about copyright such as yourself. Beach of copyright might be considered "theft" in the US, but the US is not the world, and it most certainly isn't The Netherlands.
