Reading Between The Still Secret Lines Of The ACTA Negotiations

There's been a lot of back and forth talk about ACTA and all the secrecy behind the negotiations on it. But what's really happening behind the scenes? Some experts are pointing out that it's a very profound shift in US policy -- but done in a way that most people wouldn't notice unless they've spent a lot of time understanding how DC politics works. Basically, the entertainment industry is driving through massive changes behind the scenes, and doing so in a way that lets them (falsely) say to the public "this really doesn't change anything."

No great surprise there then. Telling the truth was never one of their great strengths.

one could also wonder how many times ACTA could be interpreted by the courts as breaching constitutional rights, not just in USA but in various countries...

All we need to do to scupper such secrecy zealots is to talk about this underhand and undemocratic policy making as often as we can in public and in private, if these conspirators want to declare war on the public I dont rate their chances of staying in their jobs too long, dont stay silent folks or the enemy wins by default.
