Your balls–crushed between the U.N. and globalization:

‘How we use the internet and access to music, books, and films are at risk in the Trans Pacific Partnership negotiations……
….If you think opponents of the Trans Pacific Partnership are typically anti-free trade/anti-globalisation conspiracy theorists, consider these unlikely bedfellows: librarians, software exporters, researchers, book lovers, fans of DVDs, media creatives and people who download music…
….How real are the fears? With the negotiations cloaked in secrecy, we won’t know until the deal is too far advanced to unpick. Unless our negotiators (and those of the other participants) can stare down the US position, there are fears IP freedoms could be sacrificed for our overriding goal of improved access for dairy and meat products to US markets…’
Better get used to shutting yo mouth and pickin’ Massa’s cotton, boy.
When a housewife can be sued for hundreds of thousands of dollars for downloading a few songs, what we have here is collusion between government, lawyers and the entertainment industry to establish and enforce monopolies by the threat of disproportionate force. Funny how property rights can be trampled at will by governments–unless those rights belong to their cronies. Screw them.

    more secrecy

    The White House Correspondents Association is strongly urging the Obama administration to allow press access to the president’s official swearing-in ceremony on Jan. 20, following indications from inauguration committee officials that the event could potentially be closed to the press.

    Have you seen this about this POS who Obama has invited to perform at his “Christmas Special”??
