It's been amusing watching the entertainment industry lobbyists try to come up with talking points in support of their most favored trade agreement du jour, ACTA. A popular one is that nothing in it can or will change US law. But, of course, if you talk to the folks who know how these things work in DC, you quickly learn that's hogwash. There wouldn't be any ACTA at all if it wasn't out to change the laws, and it wouldn't be so secretive if it was just designed to keep the status quo. Case in point, not that we know for sure because we're still not being told what's in the document, but various sources have confirmed that "three strikes" legislation that would kick file sharers off the internet based on accusations (not convictions) is on the agenda. That's not in US law, and according to all the ACTA defenders out there, it would be impossible for this to be on the agenda because, we're told, ACTA can't possibly change US law. Not at all. Except for the parts that do seem to require changing US law.
