ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

there, I re-uploaded my default picture and finally got rid of that stupid random bird. Should be fixed now. If you still see a black crow holding a necklace with a heartshaped jewel in it's beak, please let me know so I can shoot it.

Back to work tomorrow, I hope this weekend helped to sort my head out.

I've missed everything though.
So I called the rabbit place and no more rabbit. Someboday bought him/her/it yesterday evening.

After calling when my lunchbreak was over I went back to the front of the store and looked out. Across the street is a toystore and right in front of my was this huge plush rabbit (nijntje), I swear it was taunting me.
From now on this journal will be friendslocked.

But I'm not picky so comment here with how you found me and a bit about yourself if you are inclined to do so and I'll probably add you.
