Legal Yes, even more copyright and intellectual property stuff. We have several stories on this one today, so I figured I'd throw them all together. First and foremost, ACTA has finally been dragged out of the shadows and into the light (thanks to the EU parliament), so we can take a look at what's in there. Is it really as bad as everyone thinks it is? Short answer: yes. Long answer: Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees.

There has been a lot of mobile news this week like Adobe giving up on the iphone but I guess Thom's personal vendetta is more important than providing news with technical substance.

Hey remember his streak of H.264 preaching? How well did that go?

Or, how about: I provide you this service for free and have a life, too?

The Adobe story is in the works.

Because in the long run this is way more important than Adobe or the iPhone will ever be?

Thom has said it before: They do take submissions. If you have a topic you feel is important to spread to the OSNews community, WRITE about it and SUMBIT the article.

Sidenote, As of this writing, this article has 4 thumbs up, and the Flash CS5 one has none.

probably because ACTA could have more impact on technology and innovation than Adobe giving up on the iPhone.
