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.

It's not the goverment that creates the GDP but simply put hard working people. The goverment is just taking they part (in Poland - over 50%) of what people earn and put it to waste by supporting stupidities like the Ministry of Digitalization - as ridicule idea as Monthy Python's ministry of silly walks.

The PM of Poland only cares about % in polls, hoping to gain some of recently lost points by pretending to care about ACTA and freedom of speach, but in the end he will do what Merkel tells him to.
