Default ACTA - destroying your privacy!

It won't take long now. Acta is soon being passed in the EU and other countries will probably follow.

Acta (Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement) is what they think a solution for pirating music. They will censor sites that might contain copyrighted material and opensource & freeware will be harder to get.

The police will be allowed to search your electronica for pirated wares, without a warrant.

Do you value your privacy?
Fight back! (irc)

some of the more, ******ed, politicans in Australia ****ed away over $30 mill in taxpayers money to make a internet censor to "protect the children" from predator..... ooo and also any site that has a complaint against it was to be banned and only a select group of politicans can choose what gets to be banned (even if its just a site critical of the government) and be the only ones that know what are banned

I'm torn - piracy deprives the creators of their monetary reward for their work, but then again I don't agree with private property in principle.
Depriving people of the internet is becoming a more serious punishment as technology progresses - this I don't agree with either!
There is a wealth of old topics with useful and unique information - your question may already have been answered!

This ass backwards trend of making the legitimate copy worth less by limiting number of installs, requiring online registration for an offline game, cloud DRM for an offline game, content designed to hurt the right of second sale, these are all things that make a pirated copy worth more than a retail copy. That is not helping developers. There's only one method that will ever stop piracy in it's current form, sending a stream of the game to the monitor and your key strokes/mouse etc are all sent to the computer actually running the game in another physical location. However due to the inherent delay and already established traditional market this sort of service for gaming is extremely unlikely to ever take over the market, and as long as traditional copies are available piracy cannot be defeated. Even if it ever does, it will not happen in my lifetime.

All industries that fear piracy need to adapt, not seek to control the internet and alienate users privacy.

As for this whole nonsense, it reminds of the ridiculous notion that every illegal download is lost revenue. Protecting intellectual properties should be limited to preventing others from profiting off of them, such as another company stealing and using it. Nothing should ever restrict the freedom of the internet, especially not for the sake of a corporations bottom line, this is even worse than traffic shaping.
Remember to read the FAQ before asking questions!

And if you don't find the answer - ask them in that same thread, we'll answer what we can.
