New Petition to White House To End ACTA Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement

If you thought SOPA and PIPA were bad, they have nothing on ACTA, which hands over copyright law and policy to an unaccountable trade collective.

I have posted in the past on ACTA, learn more here and here.

Here is the text of a petition to the White House to end ACTA, the link is here if you would like to sign it.!/petition/end-acta-and-protect-our-right-privacy-internet/MwfSVNBK

we petition the obama administration to:

End ACTA and Protect our right to privacy on the Internet

The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, or ACTA, is a 'plurilateral' trade agreement, currently being negotiated between the US, Canada, Japan, the European Union, South Korea, Mexico, Switzerland, Australia and New Zealand. It is somewhat similar to SOPA/PIPA, however ACTA is an executive agreement between countries besides the United States, and it can be passed without the approval from Congress and the Supreme Court. It is potentially hazardous to the Internet we know and how it works.

We need to stop ACTA before it is finally approved by all countries involved. If you value your privacy and you don't want "Big Brother" watching over you, sign this petition and spread the word. Research ACTA and see just how dangerous it is to the Internet, our privacy, and our liberties.
