Internet & Networking Well, this is good news. "Germany will not sign an international anti-piracy treaty, despite having already agreed to it in principal, government sources in Berlin said Friday, February 10." with Germany on the side of reason - for now - we're a huge step closer to stopping ACTA.

So far, people here in Germany doubt that this is the final decision. With all the ACTA protests going on tomorrow many feel that this might be a political stunt to keep people from protesting.

May the German people have their voices heard and protest this piece of imperialist legislation thanks to our US corporate overlords. No to any of this crap be it SOPA or ACTA or any other garbage that holds down human creativity, ingenuity, and advancement.

Funny how Hollywood rose from the strangle hold of New York on the US film industry back in the early 20th century, only to become a global version of the same anti competitive practices. Maybe it is more sad as is a lot of the content that comes out of there.
