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.

> ACTA is an anti-capitalistic treaty

What? Anti-capitalist? For me, it's very pro-capitalist – it's created for the benefit of the big corporations, and against the common people. So sorry, I think You are wrong.



There's a huge misconception as to what is capitalism. The western world is not capitalist. We are corporatist. ACTA is anti-capitalist. ACTA is corporatist. Another term for corporatism is 'crony capitalism'. See this series:
