Dr. Michael Geist Completely Annihilates ACTA on ALL Levels

Dr. Geist, a law professor at the University of Ottawa and the Canada Research Chair in Internet and E-commerce Law, completely annihilates the substance of ACTA and exposes it for what it truly is – a private treaty amongst the richest nations on the planet and their media cabals.

As I’ve stated before, ACTA negotiations were hijacked by the movie and music cartels as a way to avoid most participating countries legislative bodies. After failing in all but a few countries to get their draconian copyright laws passed they then saw the opening to hijack the ACTA negotiation. Originally negotiated as a treaty to prevent melamine contaminated, counterfeit toothpaste from killing people, movie and music cartels and their lobbyists’ quickly realized how much they stood to gain and literally bought their way to the table through their various “domestically supported” politicians.

What followed was years of private negotiations, not on preventing counterfeit goods from killing people but a coordinated attack on the rights and freedoms of media consumers. An all out war has been declared by the world media cabal and they want nothing less then complete and absolute control over anything created, published or transmitted digitally. Essentially they want to become THE GATEKEEPERS of all content that moves on the Internet whether they own it or not.

Dr. Geist seriously understates just how bad ACTA is on ALL levels. In fact ACTA seems like a treaty that we would have seen in the McCarthy era.
