Response to woo me with science (Reply #17)

18. I thought ACTA was a European Union bill.

And if ACTA has already been signed, and contains all the SOPA provisions, what's the point of complaining?

Agent Mike is already dragnetting all US communications. You can't spy on 20% more of 100%. I suppose this bill allows them to do even more devious things that I'm sure they already have the ability to do and have already therefore done (hence the need for a law to make it legal), as the banks did to make their illegal mergers legal in 1998. As for making it "legal", both the present and prior Administration have jailed anybody who blew the whistle on the program's supposed illegality, and indemnified corporations for participating.
