Legal Ah, how we Europeans get to sit back and relax whenever some company invokes the DMCA - a law we don't have over here. Sadly, that sentence has to be amended with the following word: yet. We don't have the DMCA yet, but it the ACTA is accepted, we Europeans - and the rest of the world - can no longer sit back and relax: the US is hard at work imposing the DMCA upon the nation of Foreign.

Because you're busy galloping onwards when the point is that this should never happen.

Well yes, that much is true.

The counterpoint, that you perhaps miss, is that those affected by ACTA decisions, the ordinary Joes and Joannes of the world, can actually do something about it by galloping onwards. They can make it irrelevant.

At this point there is not much in the power and scope of action of ordinary Joes and Joannes that can stop it from happening in the first place.
