Say NO to ACTA (Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement)
This is some serious shit, guys. Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”
I wouldn’t be surprised if websites like tumblr suddenly disappear.
[…] ACTA would impose new criminal sanctions forcing Internet actors to monitor and censor online communications. It is thus a major threat to freedom of expression online and creates legal uncertainty for Internet companies. In the name of trademarks and patents, it would also hamper access to generic medicines in poor countries.
Say NO to ACTA. It is essential to spread awareness and get the word out on ACTA.
