Holy crap on a cracker, excitement doesn't even begin to capture my feelings for this movie.
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.

Proposed legislation in Mississippi, USA threatens hard won women's rights. (You can read more about it HERE and see a more conservative point of view that still advocates voting no on the proposition HERE) But there is something you can do to help that doesn't require money, or marching, or even a great deal of time - but it can still make an enormous difference!
I'd like to introduce the Say "No" to Prop. 26, Pass It On! video project. Our goal is to present images of real men and women who oppose Prop. 26 and their reasons why - to remind people that this proposed legislation will have consequences that will affect everyday people just like them.
To do this we will virtually pass each other a "Vote No" logo that says, “Vote No on Prop. 26 Because…” And it is up to you to finish that statement on the back of your sign.
It can be with a phrase, short quote, art, original graphic…you name it. It can be words or pictures as long as it’s a reason people should vote "No" on Prop. 26.
We'll be accepting video clips until October 19, 2011. We apologize for the short time frame, but we need to get the video out in time to make a difference before the vote on November 8th, 2011.
