And you want everything for free just because you are to cheap to spend some money on music? The average band is NOT rich.
I was talking about those bosses who just manage everything and the rich bands as well. They are the mainforce behind all this shit happening lately

And how is that different form any other product? Will you start stealing petrol since because the oil bosses are some of the most rich people in the world?

I wouldn't, but I wouldn't care if people would. For obvious reasons.

I think some people are missing the point, it's not so much about who is stealing what (which in this case actually is
not stealing but copyright infringement), but it's about that it gives them the right and even obligation to monitor and
report your internet activity and I don't see how it's any different if they would tap in your phones or install hidden
cameras at your home, in my opinion it's a complete violation of my privacy.

I'd love to, really.
But offering my poor email adress to the gods of spam and phish for a good cause ... that's a tough call.

apart from the EU parlament each country must ratify the act for it to become law locally (Slovenia, by example)

write to your local parliamntar, the one u voted, and to others, flood them with mails.
your EU representatives have public mails too, write them mails too.
tell them you don't fancy loosing your right to private life.

SOPA and PIPA were local US laws, ACTA is cross-border nazism.

make your stand, while u can.

NP, just trying my best to save our beloved internet from those greedy bastards who try to ruin it just because they can't get enough money, while millions of people have to die, because they can't afford enough food.
It's not about the money or copyrights at all, it's about controlling the information highway.
Once the ISPs start to sniff your traffic, we're only 1 step away from complete cenzorship and possibly political/other persecution.

If they really are doing this for the money then they have IQ equal to that of a palm tree.
Just look at what apple/amazon achieved with a simple online store, in a matter of months they generated billions of pure profits. All that the film/music industry has to do is establish a similar online store system (low prices but huge costumer base) and they'd be rolling in money.

I am an artist. And even I signed that pettition. Freedom is more valuable then copyright protections.

No, but some do. does this give the oil companies the right to install cameras in my car?

I agree with You so a +1 for well said and explained in short.
Its not about the old song from the music industry that pirate's harm their income, which is so wrong anyway.
Its a fact they do sell more thanks to the promotion, just look at this example on a book writer:
Neil Gaiman on Copyright Piracy and the Web - He earned on Piracy: http://www.youtube.c...h?v=0Qkyt1wXNlI

Yes, that's a very good point, and that just shows that ACTA doesn't have much to do with helping artists, writers, etc.

I've found this video explains ACTA and what it would do very well http://www.youtube.c...h?v=dmQN93NqqDM
