“I see your SOPA and I raise you one ACTA”
ACTA is like SOPA, but worse.
The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) is a proposed plurilateral agreement for the purpose of establishing international standards on intellectual property rights enforcement. ACTA would establish a new international legal framework that countries can join on a voluntary basis and would create its own governing body outside existing international institutions such as the World Trade Organization (WTO), the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) or theUnited Nations. Negotiating countries have described it as a response “to the increase in global trade of counterfeit goods and pirated copyright protected works.” The scope of ACTA includes counterfeit goods, generic medicines and copyright infringement on the Internet.
spread this shit around.
Both PIPA and ACTA are still legitimate threats, you guys. Reblog the hell out of this.
Why is it good to do this?

Yet lot of these same people instead of supporting less goverment, less regulation. Want more goverment to fix the broken goverment.
I do not understand that. Why build more on a broken foundation? That would just lead to more collapse of our society. Would you build a house on a cracked foundation? I know I would not.
One example comes to mind of bad ideas in this area. I have been an opponent of Protect IP act and ACTA treaty along with some other smiler laws for a long time. A lot of people who are also against these stupid and liberty steeling laws. Also support Net Neutrality a regulation and liberty steeling law too.
Even if Net Neutrality was a good thing. Why is it a good thing to support a law that would be ran by the FCC. Who has had a long history of censorship? A long history of going beyond its stated mission. When our own goverment has given Federal agencies the right to create laws under the broad term of “Regulation”.
Like everything the goverment does. Laws like this, are ran were one size fits all. In the private world. Business and non-profits are able to customize what they are providing to the public. Government by its nature can’t do this, and wont do this. This Net Neutrality will be enforced has harshly on the big providers as it would be on the small town ISP. At least the big providers can eat some of these costs a law like this would have. The small town ISP would not. It would have to be bought out or die on the vine.
This one size fits all does not work for content. It is logical video is going to take up more resources then a jpeg image of your dog. There for it is going to cost more to do video. Its classic economics. Even a Austrian and a Keynesian economist can agree on this point. It is also assumed that a provider would base price on content. I do not think it is a forgone conclusion. The only place you see this happening to any degree is in the Cellphone market.
If this type thing worked in the free market. Why did the internet world move away from charging based on the hour like what we had in the 90s? Were ISPs like AOL would give you 250 hours of service a month. People wanted more so providers went to a monthly flat rate. Like what we see now from most places in the USA.
Another issue I fear. a piling up on all these regulations. ISPs will start failing and dieing. Then some bright collectivist in the goverment or media will say, “Gee why don’t we have the goverment run the internet. After all the internet is to big to fail. The goverment can protect our free speech on the net”. Like what they are saying now with Net Neutrality.
That would not be good for anyone. Now the goverment would have complet control of a free speech zone. A place were they could regulate what can be said and done. Just think of the protests in the public parks happening now and how the law is cracking down on the protesters.
I already heard rumblings that the goverment wants any one who makes content for the internet, to have a broadcaster like license. Were that license would have all kinds of strings attached. On top of the extremely high costs a license like this would have.
As the classic saying goes. Two wrong do not make a right. You can not say one controlling law is better and should replace another controlling regulation.
