I am searching for a thread about the ACTA treaty.
I suppose this thread will be deleted as the one I am looking
for apparently was. I cannot find it.
I do know that this year the U.S. government forced SourceForge to begin
blocking software downloading from certain 3rd world countries. Guess if
your country "might" have terrorists all of your citizens are deprived.
I am especially concerned as I have read the following
and many other places.
The part that is so troubling that I have read in many places is
"ACTA requires that existing ISPs no longer host free software that has the possibility of including copyrighted media; this would substantially affect many sites that offer free software or host software projects such as SourceForge and Download.com. Most software we use on our computers are free. Are we to pay the price because of a misleading treaty?"
If anyone knows where to find the thread please direct me to it.
If this is posted improperly please, please correct it without deleting it.
Thanks to anyone who can help.
