Legal We've talked about ACTA before. ACTA is an anti-capitalistic treaty which implements several measures that will seriously hurt people's freedoms, rights, and privacy, all to, among other things, support a failing business model from an industry which has failed time and time again to adapt to a changing market. In any working free market, business models are allowed to fail, but the US/EU governments clearly don't see it that way. India has now announced that it is going to forge its own anti-ACTA coalition in an effort to undermine the new treaty.

This has nothing to do with operating systems or even digital computing!

It is insulting that you use your position to disseminate your personal beliefs so.

What are you? Christian? It is not acceptable to crowbar your opinions and beliefs into an inappropriate situation, just because you are able to.

Please do not come knocking on my door in the morning.

The Capitalist / Non Capitalist argument is a pointless red herring of an argument and semantic at best. What is capitalism, how long is a piece of string same kind of argument.

However, I have to disagree, with DGNeedham IP is immense importance to Operating systems, software and IT in general as it determines the trading environment IT exists in.

In my opinion some western countries are under the illusion that they can impose an information TAX on the rest of the world and protect their companies indefinitely using there legal systems this is a delusion.
