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.

I'm still waiting for them to pass laws against "imminent murder."

There is already. Start chasing someone with an axe on busy street. Police will not wait until you manage to actually catch and kill your victim - they just have to believe that murder is imminent to arrest you.
