    Well even though SOPA and PIPA are "on hold" for the time being, our freedom of speech is now threatened by another law - ACTA.

    Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) could prove to be even worse than PIPA ans SOPA as this time it's international. ACTA is a multi-national agreement (United States, the European Union and 22 of its Member States, Australia, Canada, Japan, Morocco, New Zealand, Singapore, and South Korea) that has been called by many SOPA's evil twin.

    Even tough it's international, ACTA seems to be the back-up for SOPA and PIPA supporters (mainly big-shots from the movie and music industry with senators on their pay-roll) as this treaty has been in the making (secretly) since 2006 when the United States and Japan have commenced it's development.

    One thing that ACTA, PIPA and SOPA have in common is the fact that they're trying to combine piracy and counterfeiting as if they were one and the same thing (and we all know they have almost nothing in common).

    For more info on ACTA check out Stop Acta [http://www.stopacta.info] where you'll also find out how we can stop it.
