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.

I expect that there's also at least a weak correlation between poverty and piracy. I'm very skeptical that Tough on Piracy laws are really having much of an impact on piracy rates, at least in the States, due mainly to their highly selective application; only a tiny minority of the people who pirate media ever get sued - so few that most pirates aren't really worried about being caught and prosecuted.
