Currently there is a trade agreement being negotiated by several countries called the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. This agreement is similar to SOPA and PIPA in that it is attempting to regulate the Internet, except this time on an international level. If this trade agreement is signed it could end up being more devestating than what SOPA or PIPA could have done.
I am writing this to you today so that hopefully you can alert the readers that the fight to maintain Internet freedom is not over, and action still needs to be ta ken.
A petition is currently being signed on whitehouse.gov. If an awareness is brought to this we may be able to have as much an influence as we did in the SOPA/PIPA issue.
ACTA is a direct violation of our Constitution and should be brought to the citizens’ attention.
