    The problem with ACTA (at least for the USA) is that it only needs the signature of the president... Even if I doubt they're stupid enough to ignore everybody, this is dangerous. I don't really care if I can't download anymore. I don't really care if I can't watch my shows on streaming. But I liked the fact that I had the choice to do so without being considered as a criminal...

    (Off topic @[member='GundamXXX']: The problem with USA and communism is that they don't really understand what it is. Most people think that it's about a dictator opressing the people.)

    I think it all started with the OK City Bombing with Timothy McVaye in the 1990's

    The government at the time was really really pushing to get this "anti-terrorism" bill through...and after the bombings occureed....it was passed with no opposition.

    The Patriot act was another bill that was crafted years ago but did not have enough clout to be pushed through. 9/11 happned. and it was passed with no opposition....

    of course I could be wrong, it could have started With the assaination with JFK, as he was the last president to oppose the FBI and the fed.

    In the name of copyright? More like copywrong at this point, these issues are far beyond just a copyright-related thing. More protests then... Who will win? Businesses and Governments or the rest of the world?

    USA is getting over powered ..even against their own americans ...

    - The president can get any american (anywhere in the world) and kill him, without any charge ..(it was approved, you know? )

    - All this agreements that will destroy our freedom on the internet ( SOPA/ACTA will not be the last)

    - FBA going crazy and closing everything

    This is getting near to a dictatorship for me..

    You can call it capitalism if you want, but man ..this is oppression

    Ah so that is how the world is going to end; suicide rate skyrockets around the world.

    On a serious note: This sucks. I mean their method is evading into our privacy.

    Even if this ends all downloading possibililties, I personally will feel a sense of freedom, because I have time to do other things except watch movies and play games...

    No but seriously, people, don't worry so much, because pirating will never stop. You can make one computer (sort of) unhackable, but the internet. Just see how, as a protest to the sopa/pipa thing, they just hack a governement site!

    it's been signed since October last year. back when SOPA/PIPA was just a whiff in the air.


    we've been trolled, hard. maybe SOPA/PIPA was done to deliberately draw the ire of people while ACTA snuck in from behind.

    There needs to be a serious uprising, we need to take the power back for the people! If it comes down to it I'll have to handle some of these meatheads in black suits.
