How ACTA would affect you: FAQ

Posted: January 31st, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Quick Blurbs | No Comments »

Keep informed on what the United States Government is doing on copyright, trademarks and patents infringement. I am all for protecting our work and keeping bad folks from stealing our content, logo design, web code etc…, but this gives the government and big business too much control. Heck, with the ACTA law, you could have your cell phone searched or even your laptop searched while at the airport for what they consider copyright infringement content. To me, that means unlawful search, and how will they determine what is stolen or infringed on?

Summary: With SOPA and PIPA shelved, ACTA was somewhat ignored. Don’t know what ACTA is? Don’t worry: you weren’t meant to.
Here’s what you need to know.

Sign the petition to stop ACTA (help make the government think first before they act.)
