In the News And thus, our true colours reveal. Since Obama was the young newcomer, technically savvy, many of us were hoping that he might support patent and/or copyright reform. In case our story earlier on this subject didn't already tip you off, this certainly will: Obama has sided squarely with the RIAA/MPAA lobby, and backs ACTA. No copyright and/or patent reform for you, American citizens!

The US is chasing global copyright enforcement because content and intellectual property are the only things we have left to sell.


I don't want any American Intellectual Property at that price.

Fortunately, I can legally install excellent and fully functional desktop and server software, at zero cost, I can purchase all consumer electronics gadgets from places like Japan, Asia and China, Americans don't play Aussie rules football nor cricket, Americans don't report Australian news and current affairs, and the entire world is full of actors and singers.

American's aren't the only people with saleable products of intellect.

Many Americans have drawn the same conclusions as you have. That is one of the reasons for our economic decline.
