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.

How is three strikes Draconian?


How about this: if the electricity company detects 'illegal activity' by snooping around in your house, you will be cut of electricity for the rest of your life.

Internet has become a basic service required to survive in the 21st century Western world. No one's packets should be inspected, and no one should be deprived of something that is fundamental for living.
