Say NO to #ACTA
ACTA is one more offensive against the sharing of culture on the Internet. ACTA (Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement) is an agreement secretly negotiated by a small "club" of like-minded countries (39 countries, including the 27 of the European Union, the United States, Japan, etc). Negotiated instead of being democratically debated, ACTA bypasses parliaments and international organizations to dictate a repressive logic dictated by the entertainment industries.
ACTA (Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement) is the worlds #SOPA, though possibly worse in every way. If you live in the UK take 1 minute and make sure you get heard on this non-democratic process at http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/20685.
Don't forget you can also tell your MP how you feel via theyworkforyou.com

Just before I get off my soap box though what also bugs me is that this can be agreed on in principle by so many countries yet nothing can be done to the banking industry for years and after investigations?
