Hello democracy, goodbye ACTA
See this article at P2P Foundation. The European Parliament voted 478 to 39 rejecting ACTA, an international version of the US's SOPA, also defeated. This is a victory for citizen action against giant corporate interests, and all through internet access. For now the power of the people prevails and the internet remains open access. Celebration is in order but we must remain every vigilant and ready to activate again, given the dark forces of big money that will never quit trying to make even more money and limit the P2P democracy that is the internet.
