The United States is behind the wall of secrecy surrounding global trade talks to combat counterfeiting, say EU policy sources, who claim that American officials are refusing to let their European counterparts publish the draft agreement online.
No really? The secrecy has caused quite a kerfuffle at the EU. Still they went along with it.

Please, think before you post. There is nothing wrong with globalization. It's for the benefit of all. Really, it is

But ... ACTA is only good for a chosen few, for the already rich and powerful. You cannot fight or stop "globalization". That's a process, that happend since generations. The world is becoming smaller. Which is good thing. But everyone has to profit from this process, not only a few selected companies or countries.

And especially americans have to learn, that isolation and "running away from it all" is the fastest way to make the US a powerless third-world nation.

ACTA is yet more globalist corporatism. When will we as Americans learn that a government that has the power to give us everything we want, also has the power to take it all away? They are two sides of the same coin.

ACTA is one small part of the globalist agenda.

Political freedom can only be preceded by economic freedom which is preceded by monetary freedom.

Fuck ACTA and anyone who supports this piece of hell. For the sake of society and the world, for the sake that Orwell mustn't be right we must oppose this draconian trash with all our strengths.

Governments have no business being the official watchdogs of corporations and certainly have no business to destroy people's privacy in the way ACTA will in the name of corporations.

the sad part is ACTA was born for the benefit of a few private sector companies. public support was never considered an option for passing this trade agreement like NAFTA or any other international pact.

ACTA is simply america imposing its law to other countries. when was the last time an EU patent or copyright holder able to pursue companies in the US? an example that is still contested is the company name for zenith. in america its an electronics brand but in europe it is one of the top tier watch makers. the watch maker was established years before the american firm but when they tried to start business in america the electronics firm prevented them from using the name zenith and from doing business in america. so zenith ended up selling watch movements to third party companies like rolex who then turns around and sells the same parts at 4x the cost of the original zenith watch.
