ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Writer's Block: Round and round

Is there any song you could listen to 20 times in a day without ever losing interest?

LOL I have literally been listening to Adele's new album 21 for idk how many days now. Oh and her last album too. And I've been watching a lot of her live performances and watching her on tv, so yeah I've listened to her so much and am still pretty damn obsessed with her. Stanning Adele is something which I've found I'm adept at. I love ALL HER SONGS.

Oh no!

People I know, like on Facebook, are getting tumblrs. :( This cannot happen! I know I shouldn't even really freak out about this, but tumblr was like the only place where I didn't have any RL friends. Now, I feel a little afraid of them looking at my tumblr and judging me and ugh. Eep! This sucks. :(

I am speechless

If anyone on my flist has seen Farscape, I just have to say one thing: how did you make it from the break between season 2 and 3? I just finished watching like the last 5 episodes of season 2 and I'm bawling right now. I can't even. Oh my god. This show. Shit. These actors. I can't.

OMG, JOAN!!!

OMG I JUST SAW MAD MEN 2X12 AND I WANT TO CRY.

OMG OMG OMG.

my heart breaks for them

 I'm following this person on tumblr who is going through AtS, not for the first time I think, and just reading her reactions to everything that's happened and that's going to happen makes me so sad.click for epic ramblingCollapse )
