Sheep. Have you seen one of those in real life? Freakin adorable. But those things are evil cause have you ever seen one those get angry? No? Exactly. They keep it all bottled up so when the get angry They unleash a fury of crazy sheep evilness.
“From what I can tell it’s even LESS known than ACTA. I haven’t even been able to find any YouTube videos on it.
Here are two lovely quotes I think you will find interesting:
“A leaked version of the February 2011 draft U.S. TPP Intellectual Property Rights Chapter indicates that U.S. negotiators are pushing for the adoption of copyright measures far more restrictive than currently required by international treaties, including the controversial Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement.”
“The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative is pursuing a TPP agreement that will require signatory counties to adopt heightened copyright protection that advances the agenda of the U.S. entertainment and pharmaceutical industries, but omits the flexibilities and exceptions that protect Internet users and technology innovators.”
Yep, more restrictive than ACTA.
Countries will be forced to rewrite their copyright laws and adopt this agreement’s (beyond sucky) laws.
I don’t really know much about this myself, but here are a few points summarized from the article: -Temporary reproductions of copyrighted works without permission will count as infringement. (So I’m guessing you can’t put your music on an external drive if you’re getting a new computer?) -Countries can’t import legitimate goods without copyright owner approval. (So basically Japan could say that USA is no longer allowed to import anime.) -Extend the Life+70 years copyright in individual work, and the 95 years after publication/120 years for corporation stuff. -Ban circumvention of digital locks. (DMCA is a whole host of issues in and of itself.) -“Adopt criminal sanctions for copyright infringement that is done without a commercial motivation.” (Pretty self-explanatory there.) -“Adopt the U.S. DMCA Internet Intermediaries copyright safe harbor regime in its entirety. This would require Chile to rewrite its forward-looking 2010 copyright law that currently provides for a judicial notice and takedown regime, which provides greater protection to Internet users’ expression and privacy than the DMCA’s copyright safe harbor regime.” (Couldn’t have said it better myself.)” - WindieDragon
Mother of fucking god, I am seriously getting tired of the fucking US continuously fucking trying to fuck shit up by making so much fucking shit and caring so fucking much about fucking copyright and fucking intellectual fucking properly fucking problems when there are so many other fucking much more fucking important fucking problems that have to be fucking taken fucking care of. Fuck.
I don’t fucking care if this will fucking fill my fucking fuck quota of the fucking month, holy fucking shit balls on a dick.
I don’t fucking even fucking FUCK.
Just spread this shit. Just fucking do it.
What the fucking fuck, can’t they fucking give the internet a fucking break?!
This is fucking ridiculous.
this is the worst idea ever
WHY WON’T THIS STOP ALREADY?
What the mother fucking shit. WHAT THE LITERAL MOTHER FUCKING SHIT.

HOW MANY FUCKING INTERNET BILLS ARE GOING TO BE PASSED WHAT THE FUCK WHAT THE FUCK WHAT THE FUCK
That does it. I’m moving out of this crappy country.
The weeping angel you called ugly? She can't even look at herself in the mirror. See that unemotional Cybermen? He used to be one of us. The Oods that you make fun of? They get treated as slaves everyday. The lady that you called crazy? She knows all of time and space. See the weird man with the bowtie and the fez? He's the loneliest man in the universe. Reblog this if you're against bullying in the Time-Space Continuum.
So, I’m not even making a slide for this. This is bullshit. Please, everyone, get educated, and try and stop all of these ridiculous censorship laws that are trying to be passed. The Internet (and cosplay) depend on it!
I kind of feel like SOPA and PIPA were the enemies that we thought were the end bosses cos they were really hard but they were just stage 1 and then ACTA comes along and is the huge end boss that the internet has to battle
you thought I didn’t really notice. But I did. I wanted to high-five you.
Yesterday I had a pair of brothers in my store. One was maybe between 15-17. He was a wrestler at the local high school. Kind of tall, stocky and handsome. He had a younger brother, who was maybe about 10-12 years old. The…
This is how i keep myself entertained on days i'm not busy. :I
Think i’ll post a rant about certain stereotypes that have been pissing me off lately. One stereotype i would like to get off my chest is “weaboo” and “otaku”. Yeah. Shit’s gonna get real tomorrow. Especially since i’ve been hearing those terms being used completely out of context for the most stupid things.
