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.

We've already seen this in Asia where certain types of software can not be sold due to piracy making local markets untenable.


This problem could easily be solved if software companies understood that what's a reasonable price in the U.S is not a reasonable price in, for example, Vietnam.

Laws are not created for the sake of convenience.

True, but would you have been happy living in the cold-war soviet union or east germany?
The rights of the people are more important than the right for companies to make money.
