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.

We should thank the Polish people for this, they mass protested against ACTA while demonstrations in other countries were pretty mild.

Anyway it's one battle won but the war for freedom on The Internet or better said, the war for our freedom and democracy is far from over.

Big corporations will keep pushing governments to pass laws which limit our freedom but it's good to see that they get more and more resistance from the public these days.
