ACTA: NWO Stealth Treaty To Control Internet

Meet the Orwellian-speak 'Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement' aka ACTA:
Stealth Treaty Seeks Strict Controls Over Internet onthecommons.org

[excerpts; see full article]
A sweeping international treaty to regulate how knowledge and creativity may flow on the Internet is now being negotiated.

Details about the treaty are murky. But the latest draft, according to a leak summarized on the Boing Boing website, would require:
That Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have to proactively police copyright on user-contributed material. This means that it will be impossible to run a service like Flickr or YouTube or Blogger, since hiring enough lawyers to ensure that the mountain of material uploaded every second isn’t infringing will exceed any hope of profitability.
That ISPs have to cut off the Internet access of accused copyright infringers or face liability. This means that your entire family could be denied to the internet — and hence to civic participation, health information, education, communications, and their means of earning a living — if one member is accused of copyright infringement, without access to a trial or counsel.
That the whole world must adopt US-style “notice-and-takedown” rules that require ISPs to remove any material that is accused — again, without evidence or trial — of infringing copyright. This has proved a disaster in the U.S. and other countries, where it provides an easy means of censoring material, just by accusing it of infringing copyright.
Mandatory prohibitions on breaking DRM [Digital Rights Management systems], even if doing so for a lawful purpose (e.g., to make a work available to disabled people; for archival preservation; because you own the copyrighted work that is locked up with DRM).
Who would have guessed that such nasty stuff was embedded in a treaty called the “Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA)”? That title was presumably meant to reassure people that it’s a non-controversial measure. But fighting counterfeits seems to be just the cover story.
The real goal is to win a backdoor expansion of copyright law, much stronger enforcement powers and greater corporate control of the Internet — all without having to go through that pesky process known as democracy.
Key Washington insiders and corporate players have been granted full access to the draft treaty — but we the little people have been excluded. Wanna read the draft? You can’t. The official rationale is that such disclosures would jeopardize national security. Seriously.
"ACTA involves dozens if not hundreds of substantive aspects of intellectual property law and its enforcement, including those that have nothing to do with counterfeiting. . . . There are concerns about the impact of ACTA on the privacy and civil rights of individuals, on the supply of products under the first sale doctrine, on the markets for legitimate generic medicines, and on consumers and innovation in general."
re: 'impossible to run a service like Youtube, Flickr, or Blogger'
Taking control of an entire planet is tricky, especially when those pesky bloggers keep letting the cat out of the bag about everything - and so they must be shut down. The system to do so is under construction on many fronts, and it is only a matter of time before the 'restrictiveness' begins. There is no game being played here, it is evil intentions all the way - Satanic control of mankind, believe it or not, and, the time to make the final push has arrived. This is the harsh reality of the visible darkness now enveloping the entire world. Controlling the net, aka silencing dissent, is a given. The Cabalistic sorcerers of the new world order of Babylon have no intention of allowing free speech in any form. fyi
