Legal It would seem that freedom of speech and the open web are in better hands in Eastern Europe than they are in Western Europe. After Poland, the Czech Republic is the second country to suspend the process of ratifying ACTA. "A wave of protests against the international agreement, including hackers' attacks, has swollen in the world as well as in the Czech Republic. 'By no means would the government admit a situation where civic freedoms and free access to information would be threatened,' [Czech PM] Necas said." Anyone from either Poland or the Czech Republic care to comment on how serious we have to take their politicians? If a Dutch or an American politician said something like this, I'd be weary and mistrusting.

Well, it's easy to have higher GDP than let's say Sweden or Belgium when you have four times as large population. What matters is GDP (PPP) per capita and Poland is far behind these countries and also behind other former communist countries like Slovenia, Czech Republic, Slovakia or Hungary.
