Mutualist Blog: Free Market Anti-Capitalism

To dissolve, submerge, and cause to disappear the political or governmental system in the economic system by reducing, simplifying, decentralizing and suppressing, one after another, all the wheels of this great machine, which is called the Government or the State. --Proudhon, General Idea of the Revolution

At C4SS--ACTA Treaty is DMCA on Steroids

Most commentators seem to agree that, if this is enforceable, it will effectively destroy what’s variously known as Web 2.0 or the writeable Web. If the treaty is literally and effectively enforced, it will mean a return to the Internet of the 1990s, when most websites were high-tech sales brochures and/or PR handouts for large corporations and government agencies. Or as one commenter under Doctorow’s post put it, “The problem with the Internet is that it is not TV. This will be fixed by ACTA.”
