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.

It is closer to 1/100000 of the recent bailouts.

Monarchs are not that costly. Sure in theory all the stuff they "own" has value, but are you really going to sell the Palace if there was no Queen, or do you just have to pay for the maintainence out of a different pocket?

You end up paying the same and only get a small handfull of no income, inherited wealth celebrities out of it.
