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.

Am I the only one that is wondering if Thom did this, just to stir up a stupid and predictable 'my politics is bigger than your's' debate, to simulate activity and traffic?

You know, like Turkey and that boat of Aide?

Yes, I did this only to talk about politics (?).

Nevermind the fact that intellectual property, patents, and copyright have been incredibly important topics in technology for a long time now. If you don't like a frakking topic, don't comment on it.

This isn't rocket science. Stop spamming, please.
