Legal While our beloved readers from the United States celebrate their independence (have a good one, guys and girls), the European Parliament has just voted against ACTA with an absolutely overwhelming majority: 478 against ACTA, 39 in favour (and 165 abstentions). I'm raising a coffee to this one, kids.

The new ACTA would have the slogan:

"Democracy you MUST agree with!"

Democracy: the ONLY option
Democracy: you have no choice
Democracy is mandatory

To have it work better, the definition needs to be tweaked. Eventually a better word will (hopefully) emerge...

Good one... in then still USSR during the Gorbachev times, around late 80's, there used to be a saying: "regarding the pluralism of views there cannot be any difference of opinion"...
