Legal Yes, even more copyright and intellectual property stuff. We have several stories on this one today, so I figured I'd throw them all together. First and foremost, ACTA has finally been dragged out of the shadows and into the light (thanks to the EU parliament), so we can take a look at what's in there. Is it really as bad as everyone thinks it is? Short answer: yes. Long answer: Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees.

The monarchy in such countries is meant to be symbolic and ceremonial, and to preserve the traditions of the nation. For example, Queen Elizabeth is still the Queen of Canada (even though we separated from Britain hundreds of years ago), and most of us don't mind keeping her (with the exception of certain groups like the Quebec seperatists).
