OMG ACTA clarified

EA representative of Nintendo wants a white list of European websites, Microsoft wants a Windows Update WITH Trojan which DOMINATES your computer on criminal content. Euh?!!?? Ubuntu! I understand why we want to discuss this behind EU closed doors.

I don’t know how far the commercial/innovation intelligence of these EU groups goes, but pretty boys/girls consulting the EU, wake up please. You’re not in line with the rest of the world. Adapt or be retarded. Soon.

I won’t start a innovation/democracy rant.. it simply isn’t worth the words. In this case we need replacements, not discussion.

Greed, in all of its forms — greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge — has marked the upward surge of mankind.
And greed — you mark my words — will not only save Teldar Paper, but that other malfunctioning corporation called the USA.
