If you thought SOPA and PIPA were bad, let us introduce you to their Big Brother, ACTA.
The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, which has already been signed by several countries, poses a dangerous threat to the inherent freedom and openess of the Internet. Under ACTA, ISPs and websites will be given more power to track what we do online, while forcing them to turn over our information and reporting our activity to the authorities — all in the name of copyright protection! While we respect the rights of creators, ACTA’s ill-conceived provisions will have chilling effects on free speech everywhere.
The European Parliament will soon hold a final consent vote on ACTA and may be our only hope to stop this dangerous agreement. A "No" vote will dismantle ACTA and make countries go back to the negotiating table. We’ve already help bring down SOPA and PIPA, now let’s turn the fight to ACTA. Call on the EU Parliament to take a stand and vote “NO” on ACTA!
