    Assuming we're all here for the same reason, or at least like minded in free internet respects, this WORLD LAW, would affect all of us. So it would be in our best interests to sign it, no?

    The link below is the petition, heres hoping this somehow magically accomplishes something :P

    Jesus titty-mongering Christ, that's fast for a petition, even for online standards.

    Although it got signed in the US, it has not been used at all mainly due to cost of policing it's far too expensive for the US.

    I signed it anyway, because it needs to stay dorment.

    Signed. I would think that a 250k would do SOMETHING, but probably not. Doesn't hurt to try.

    What I read was no, the US Congress has not ratified ACTA. But Obama says he ratified it by executive order (unconstitutional), and it has been cited now by FBI/DOJ as the basis for the Megaupload takedown.

    Someone will probably come along now and allege I'm a racist.
