    And here is a quote from Wikipedia stating how they snuck the passage of this agreement right under our noses:

    On topic: I wanted to post this bit of important new because we have a small window to protest but it must be made public knowledge VERY quickly. Also, this bill was OBVIOUSLY negotiated in secret. In fact, if the bill wasn't leaked then we would have little to no knowledge of this agreement at all.... Fuck our lives...

    Well this'll go over well. SOPA/PIPA got quite a variety of people up in arms, and it was a US thing.
    Now that it concerns the world...yeah this was a pretty retarded idea. People will be voicing their opinion, and when everyone around the world voices their opinion, it'll be pretty fucking loud.

    So now it's an INTERNATIONAL situation? Fuck them. Screw whoever who initiated this.

    Now there's one more plan once this fails and it's called the IAAM, or International Anti-Piracy Authoritarian Method. /joke

    So now, they want to monitor our cellphones, computers, media players and censor internet (and I'm not even talking about flashcards)... They should maybe think about 'privacy' before 'piracy'...

    So the ACTA was already SIGNED?!?! How long till in effect with or without those other signatures?
    If European Parliament has the final voice over this bill everyone shout, and FUCKING SHOUT LOUD. None of this slacktivism shit, either.

    Whatever they do, they will always fail in what they wish to aim.

    But yeah, ACTA? WTF.

    If you go on a downloading spree, don't download a lot of files all at once. Talked to my friend and he told me cap it to like 6GBs every 2 days so that if your IP address gets tracked it's not for a massive suspicious file downloads.

    Do NOT let your guard down now that SOPA/PIPA are down! While we've been busy flanking these 2 disastrous legislations, ACTA continues to advance! Those who wish to STOP acta can sign a petition on the White House website to urge them to drop it! https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions#!/petition/end-acta-and-protect-our-right-privacy-internet/MwfSVNBK

    When will they learn that pirates can't be defeated. Even if this pass, people will still continue to pirate like before without any consequences.

    Even if they shut the internet down, piracy will continue.

    I think voicing our opinion is irrevelant, what is needed here is to completely destroy the life of those people supporting it or just simply ... erase them.

    Sorry, but those 3 bills wouldn't change a thing. People would still download illegal files like before. In other words, those bills would serve no purpose. Not only those bills would be unable to stop piracy, but even if they did, piracy would adapt and they'd be back to square one.

    You can't defeat piracy, it's a battle they can't win no matter what.
