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.

Well, considering that it can really suck when a bad ruler comes into absolute power... but still, given the crap chute we're making of things lately maybe an absolute ruler wouldn't be so bad.
That being said, is the Netherlands a true monarchy? I don't believe it is, as they have a parliamentary government as well, so what's the monarch's purpose? Figurehead?
