Misleading anti-ACTA arguments

January 31, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Just to point out an excellent article revealing that many anti-ACTA claims are simply not true.

Most prominently, according to the article, there is nothing in ACTA requiring ISPs to monitor your traffic. Compare the article to the anti-ACTA video by Anonymous to get the whole picture. Still, the article does not state that ACTA is a good treaty. It should just be opposed for the right reasons.

This is a good example why we should not believe every outrageous statement we hear on why we soon live in an Orwell-esque world but rather inform us from different sources ourselves. Only when we know all the facts we can take measures to create a world we want to live in.

This reminds me of the story in Austrian media on the Ukraine killing dogs for the European championship, which was nicely proven inaccurate by kobuk.at (English translation).

Having said that, go read ACTA in its final version and get your own opinion.

Update: Here is another interesting read on ACTA from a consumers perspective. They talk about  the “Intermediary liability of service providers”.
