ACTA is an international treaty meant to enforce existing copyright legislation on a broader scale. The agreement itself is regarded by many as an offense to people’s democratic rights, because it bypasses all existing laws related to your privacy online, while lacking any meaningful input from national parliaments or their citizens.
Last October, U.S. Trade Ambassador signed the treaty during a ceremony in Tokyo. Since 2008, the U.S. Trade Representative’s Office has been trying to convince the people that the treaty was initially negotiated as a “sole executive agreement” under the President’s power to conclude agreements over issues delegated to the President which won’t need the Congress’ review or approval. However, this kind of thinking was criticized by famous U.S. Constitutional Law professors and the Electronic Frontier Foundation on several occasions. In addition, Senator Ron Wyden also raised a number of problems in his letter to the President. He pointed out that the statement by the U.S. Trade Ambassador actually confuses the issue by conflating two separate steps of the process needed for binding the United States to international agreements, the first of them being entry, and the second – implementation. Although it may be possible for the country to enforce the treaty, once validly entered, without legislation, if it doesn’t imply any change in U.S. law, the ACTA’s executive branch still doesn’t have constitutional authority to enter a binding international agreement that covers issues being delegated by the Constitution to Congress’ authority, absent congressional approval.
If the agreement is regarded as a treaty, it would need the approval of 2/3 of the Senate to be ratified. A suggestion to negotiate the treaty as a sole executive agreement can be regarded as an act of abusing power.
This February the Electronic Frontier Foundation submitted a FOIA request to the county’s State Department, seeking a copy of the “Circular 175” memorandum for the treaty, and the accompanying Memo of Law, which generally includes a discussion and justification of the designation of the suggested agreement.
Taking all this into account, you should understand that ACTA is still a matter of huge importance for both America and other European countries involved into negotiations.

|SOPA, ACTA, CISPA, all this legislation it's just to control the flow of information on the internet, in the U.S 5 multinational control 90 percent of the so called news, so they use copyright infringement to try to control the information, they did the same thing with the patriot act by scaring the crap out of you with terrorism. Banks control the money flow, water, oil and most of the natural resources control by multinational. my point is that they are scared of a informed citizenry, that is why the dumbing down of america and the world is they agenda. "Where the people fear the government you have tyranny. Where the government fears the people you have liberty. i cant remember who say that.|
|as i said on Sept.11'th, if there is a Terrorist. Let them try to "Terrorize" me. I own Several weapons, i am trained in the martial arts and im not afriad of a guy with a towel wrapped around his head carrying a Knife and a IED strapped to his chest.|
Want to terrify them? tell them "We will drop a Nuke on youre home country if you dont Shut up and deal with it!"...
LEAVE THE INTERNET ALONE... ive stated it before, ill say it again. The internet is a FREE form of communication. Set up by hundreds of Country's with the Ideal's of giving people a way to share information and services...
You want to protect us? protect us from the Billionaire Bankers and Moron Politicians that only seek profit from every venture in life. That think nothing of the well-being of others and seek only monetary gain from the suffering of others.
|if you know martial arts then why use weapons and also man you cant stop a guy from planting a bomb near your house when your asleep did ya think about that or maybe a guy driving a car straight in your door ? unless you got a rocket launcher or a mortar but those are hard to get and we need to protect ourselves take some ov those weapons and take out a couple ov billionaire bankers also imports suck i agree with the honda taking it in the ass but mitshshitzi does aswell maybe by ford and while that happening may dodge and BMW give all three the golden shower|
|and if i was to die by a terrorist then may his families faith keep my black spirit from gettin within their bodies and making them commit suicide|
|people,dont run and fooled..this isnt finished yet...maybe acta is out for a while but they will come back with this or another same project with another name.|
the most of us why know and the rest i hope soon understand it THE GOVERNMENTS DO ANYTIME EVERYTHING THEY WANTS!!
SOPA PIPA ACTA CISPA were some ideas they want to throw on our minds! they are not hurry to control everything but one day they will....
