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.

What about child porn? Should you have total privacy there as well?

Here we go again. Humans do bad stuff. Let's call in brain police!

There are already treaties on copyright laws between Western nations.

There is a difference between 'is' and 'ought'. Philosophy 101.

People lose legal rights when they break the law.

Right. Do you lose the legal right not to get tortured, to get food, shelter, etc.? No you don't, at least not in the civilized part of the world.

Piracy is harmful to any kind of industry, not just digital industry.

1. Piracy is people looting ships.
2. Currently, the entertainment industry is more harmful to society than any 'pirate'. And in the end, we get to make the laws, not the entertainment industry.
