"For many years, Canada has strongly resisted US-style copyright laws, despite tremendous pressure to do so. Watching them cave on ACTA is certainly a disappointment." I am sure there must be some mistake here. Only the paranoid, venal and mendacious National Rifle Association could come up with a crazy idea like having an international organization interfering with our freedom and sovereignty. Remember what then-candidate Obama said, some people are so stupid that they cling to their guns and religion. Are you watching out for black helicopters hoovering over your server farms? OK, back to the real world: It would be nice if we didn't have to be concerned about everybody in the bleeping world trying to cause trouble for us, but that seems to be the nature of human beings; if we want to keep any freedom we will have to keep right on kicking them in the whatever, slow them down as much as possible.
