ACTA

This confession came to my attention via Michael Geist.

Coincidentally this came at the same time via 3QuarksDaily, and I was also pleased to see that Neil Young has joined those who see the excessive criminalization of media sharing (and especially of  private copying) as ill advised.

Personally I am not a big user of commercial media, but the arrogant presumption of assholes stealing my money to pay for copying I will never do, and threatening to lock media that I do buy into playability only on proprietary platforms, has put me firmly in the pro-pirate camp. And I expect to stay there until the media world either rots away or comes to its senses and adopts a more reasonable and respectful attitude.
