Legal We have some very, very good news for Europeans (which happens to include myself): we have the European Parliament on our sides when it comes to battling ACTA. If you may recall, ACTA is basically an attempt by the US to impose upon the rest of the world draconian measures like three strikes laws and the DMCA. All parties within the European Parliament have together put forth a resolution that would effectively tackle ACTA.

You have got to be kidding me!

I've just watched eight years of media harassment by your last presidential administration. I've personally spoken to recording artists, an industry I am much involved in, who have repeatedly stated that they where at the time scared to speak out about Bush and his criminal cronies in case they would come under sever scrutiny. There are countless tales of the same thing happening with the press as well. That would never fly in Europe without there being one hell of a sh*t storm.

As for privacy, you say you care about it but in actual fact you have none and have done nothing to stop the above mentioned criminals from taking it away from you. How else do you explain the Patriot Act? Again, something like the Patriot Act would not fly over here without serious consequences.

I rest my case.
