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.

Enforcability

At least one part looks unenforcable - imminent infringement. Any user using Tor could be accused of 'imminent infringement' under this law.

Yes, sucks for Tor users. But what exactly makes it unenforceable? Besides, as someone else already said, it is probably tool to catch file sharers without having to prove that someone actually downloaded - just 'making available' will be enough. Or maybe just going to piratebay and downloading .torrent file.
