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 did not say that it is bad. Just that I do not understand it. I have never lived with one, and I am curious about what it is like, and what makes it good. I know the issues of self government, like representatives following the polls instead of the long term good, and the possibility of majority abuse of a minority. I also know the good side, like the accountability of those in government to those they govern, and the ability to change things if they are going wrong.

I have never lived with a monarchy, and as Thom implies that they are great, I am interested to know why.
