Legal We've talked about ACTA before. ACTA is an anti-capitalistic treaty which implements several measures that will seriously hurt people's freedoms, rights, and privacy, all to, among other things, support a failing business model from an industry which has failed time and time again to adapt to a changing market. In any working free market, business models are allowed to fail, but the US/EU governments clearly don't see it that way. India has now announced that it is going to forge its own anti-ACTA coalition in an effort to undermine the new treaty.

You are right. Directly labeling Christians so, was wrong.

Before Thom argues with that leaked document:

Yes, the ACTA has written their intent to alter internet laws but that is what the ACTA is all about making money off of fears.

They are a sink. You must remember that both sides of the idiocracy are being played (ie
Madoff). 'companies' like this have always popped up in times that openness threatens the American way:
When cassettes threatened to destroy the music industry,
When floppy disks threatened to destroy the software industry,
When VHS threatened to destroy the movie industry,
When writable CDs threatened to destroy everything...

This time it is global freedom and internet. They will feed off the fears of the rich - The core party making as much money from funds and stocks as they can, before they bail and leave the 'comapany' in its death throws, to sue everyone left right and center.

They have as much interest in destroying your freedoms as they do in having an interesting title.
