Man. Total (predictable) bummer. Not even a week after European Parliament axed ACTA has it slithered out of its grave to make another attempt at implementation.
On Fuck Yeah! American Freedom (To Eat and Consume!) Day here in the States, our fellow humans over in the European Parliament have uppercut a dirty son of a bitch much to our internet folks’ pleasure.
ACTA, the serpentine beast awaiting to prey on our internet privacy is going to a vote on Wednesday in the European Parliament. Here’s hoping it’s nailed to a board and thrown to sea.
You’ve heard about that crazy lawyer guy who is suing the creator of the popular website The Oatmeal. Don’t fret for good sir creator. He is rolling deep, with a posse of serious fortifications.
CISPA prevails! As a collective community we must have blown every ounce of protester-load we had getting SOPA nailed into a casket, cause we sure as shit ain’t doing much about CISPA. It’s like SOPA on steroids, has the back acne to prove it, and once slept with your Mom. No kissing, no phone call the day after.
I’ve riffed on CISPA before here on the Mothership. The bastard born from the aborted coils of SOPA, it has every intention of ramming us Internet users in the honeypot with barbed intentions. Its proponents (like Facebook) whisper that it’s harmless. Inevitable. The EFF begs to differ.
