Okay, though I'm a bit shy in posting this (I don't know if I am good explaining or wording this).   Letting anyone know, you have my permission to paste this around, add more links, and even edit it.

Here's my reasons why I don't support ACTA.
For a bill that's suppose to prevent piracy, here's what it will do:

Destroy freedom of speech - Especially on the internet.

Under ACTA, the government and the elite will censor what they considered as 'Copywrite Infringement.' By shutting down sites. They will have control over the information and we would be in the dark(The government has been meaning ), this would effect news sites and information sites as well, since they can't spread and/or report.  Our blogs and online journals will be censored as well. All of this goes against America's Constitution of Freedom of Speech amendment.

Stifle trade, especially of generic medicines -

In seeking on how to protect brands from piracy under the name of patenting, ACTA will halt generic drugs, including ones that work. Developing countries, like Africa, will be doom since they need the cheaper generic medicine for treatment like HIV.

Governments will monitor internet activity -

The government will know who you are, what you do, even your medical records, and - Oh, lets say every aspect of your life. You and I won't have any privacy whatsoever.

Secrecy -

ACTA's origins are obscure, because in the government have negotiate it behind the peoples' backs and without our say. I see that as shady and worthy for conspiracy theory fodder.

It is SOPA/ PIPA version 3.0 -

What's worse, is that the pirates will slip through the cracks via loophole and it will harm internet users.  

Concerning NDAA -

From what I hear of NDAA, the bill will have the military and police detained American civilians, the arrest will even be without a warrant. They can even throw American civilians behind bars, even in foreign countries. On the whole it's bad news and I'm still trying to get what it is. These links will explain better than I can: fractalmonster.deviantart.com/… and stop-sopa-group.deviantart.com… .

C-11 -

It's the Canadian version of SOPA.

TPPA -

I wished that I know more about the TPPA. Except it's another international censor bill, it will attack medicine trades, and free speech.  I add more articles that will explain in detail of how bad it will be and what it is in the Info links section.


On the Entertainment side -

The bronies saved Derpy, now to defeat ACTA and the rest of the bills.

I know right.

Yes you have my permission to post it up, lionessgirl. No, I don't think it's copyright infringement (I suspect that I might get in trouble with a grammar nazi for some mistakes).

Derpy thing: I have Asperger's, and I think Derpy is awesomesauce XD Although, dunno if you can really consider her actions even remotely related to Asperger's... it doesn't make you act like Derpy, just sorta weird at times ^^
I don't really get though how it's offensive to anypony. She's just plain silly, and was named because of that.
Dumb haters.

Oh, I also have Asperger's.

I also know that Derpy's not what those PC people/ Derpy haters say she is.
