    Thank you, Michael and Cory and everyone else who is tracking this. I have sent my letters, and I have tried talking to friends about this, but it’s just not on the radar for many.

    I appreciate everyone who is keeping after these bastards. They want to just shove this through without anyone noticing; only your efforts are preventing that from happening. So yeah, thanks…

    Well, Devigne himself spoke of the three strikes when he explained ACTA to US journalists.

    Sufficiently evasive and indirect wording gives plausible deniability. Standard tactic in these situations. “It’s only an example.” “I didn’t read the footnotes.”

    If this were to work the way the MAFIAA wants, there would be no more internet, never mind ISPs. After all, permanent disconnections would eventually affect everybody.

    This isn’t going to happen. Sane countries may or may not sign this garbage, but when it comes to losing jobs and businesses of their own for the sake of a few Hollywood lawyers, they’ll put their money where the votes are.

    Can’t we refer to this as the Kim Jong Ill rule instead?.
    If you are convicted of an anti state crime in North Korea, three generations of your family must suffer in prison with you.

    Good. This means that undermining secrecy works. Keep leaking those documents guys!

    Interesting. So what exactly are they proposing and what are the terms of said proposal?

    You don’t understand; nobody actually said the ‘three strikes’ magic phrase, therefore he is not lying. Simple!

    And slightly off-topic, just how did the record industry and movie industry get to take over the entire process anyway? Are politicians for sale *that* cheaply?

    What @imag said!

    @ #4, tim: Politicians are not available for cheap. WHich is why the massive entertainment is the one taking over the entire decision making process. The population that will be afflicted by ACTA has nowhere near the funds or singular to compete with BPI, the MCAA or their component corporations. It’s not the cheapness of politicians but deep pockets of the industry that’s co-opting the entire process.
