ACTA - Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement - Your Internet Rights Are Screwed

Didn't see a thread on this - figured I would chime in to what 4chan is preaching to everyone:

Basically, ACTA is a huge trade agreement (treaty) with voluntary countries to try to control counterfeit goods - including digital copyrights online. The problem is, with this comes your rights becoming ANALLY raped. This includes being able to obtain your information from an ISP with no warrant or probable cause. Quoting Wikipedia for convenience to get this started:

Quote:
The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) is a proposed plurilateral agreement for the purpose of establishing international standards on intellectual property rights enforcement.[1] ACTA would establish a new international legal framework that countries can join on a voluntary basis[2] and would create its own governing body outside existing international institutions such as the World Trade Organization (WTO), the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) or the United Nations.[1][3] Negotiating countries have described it as a response "to the increase in global trade of counterfeit goods and pirated copyright protected works."[2] The scope of ACTA is broad, including counterfeit goods, generic medicines and copyright infringement on the Internet.[4] Because it is in effect a treaty, ACTA would overcome many court precedents defining consumer rights as to "fair use" and would either change or remove limitations on the application of intellectual property laws.

it's not my right to pirate movies

that being said, the wild west days of the internet are slowly coming to an end, expect to see tiered service in the coming decade. unfortunately there's not much we can do about it.

Too deep there Redrum - this isn't about pirating. It's about privacy and rights in general. You can associate it with pirating all you want I suppose. Does ripping your CD's and making backup copies sound illegal to you? Basically they want nothing but iTunes DRM music sold with shit like this.

I agree with your assertion that you have no right to pirate.

However, the premise for "suspicion of piracy" is deliberately loosely and poorly defined.

It has been upheld that I have a right to legally make a backup of media that I own.
So content producers create encryption and counter-measures which cannot be legally circumvented (and in some cases have malicious effects!)
In some cases this has resulted in copyright notices for downloading digital copies of media you own; including legal suits which come at great expense to the consumer.

No one here is going to argue you have a right to piracy. But if you think you can rape my right to privacy (where I browse, my files, etc...) just to ensure that media companies get every penny you can suck my dick. Adapt to changes in technology or die in a fire. We aren't going to hold your hand while the world changes. iTunes is a perfect example of someone that doesn't have their eyes blindfolded and are banking off of it. Plus the whole premise of needing a "man in the middle" to produce entertainment works is coming to an end in general.

(I know this isn't limited to just digital rights, but that's the main point I'm arguing against)
