    So I’ve got a question. Why is it that European democracies seem to be immune to being bought and sold by the IP industry and Wall Street, whereas the US democracy is not? I’m really kind of serious about that and interested in data.

      The Answer to your qestion is: You don’t see the bad stuff.  Sometimes it gets out only years later (like the Sweden law that was written by Hollywood and demands like “shut down PirateBay or you get on the trade-punishment list”)
      This battle-victory (the war against ACTA is NOT over!) was only possible thanks to about 150.000 people on the streets and even more mails to the EU. 
      2 of the 3 votes were very close (like 12:10 with 2 neutral in one case).

      ACTA is like SOPA: Only one of a steady stream of cant-believe-treaties.

      I think there’s a correlation with the much broader political spectrum in Europe.
