    Unfortunately most people are only willing to mobilise when there is something they fiercely oppose, let it be SOPA, PIPA or ACTA. They have to feel that there is a threat, even if there is no such a thing, that a certain legislative proposal will ''break the internet as we know it.'' Very few activists are willing to actually propose realistic alternatives to the current legal framework, let alone support anything coming from Brussels (however good intentioned it may be).

    If people that care about the internet would be as committed with the current (very important) proposals in the pipeline as they were with ACTA I'm sure the quality of the final outcome could be improved substantially.

    I call for less negative protesting and more positive instead!
