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.

For one thing, in Europe, freedom of the press is considered to be secondary to "privacy" whatever that means

Stop talking before you make a total ass of yourself.
a) there's no "Europe". Every country have their own laws, regulations and courts.
b) Many countries in Europe are more free than the U.S and protect their citizens privacy better. Some are less so.

though we do consider privacy to be important as well.

Really? You do? You had me fooled.
