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.

In the interests of quelling my spoiler addiction, now that the SC has been closed does anyone know a site or lj community where I can get my BSG spoilers? I need those spoilers to survive, I'm completely addicted.

Also does anyone know where I can find the Katee scenes in Col Case that I could dl?

O.K I know I've had this account for a while and never actually posted in my journal, so here goes to anyone who wants to hear about insane rumblings about my life.

First of all I'm so excited that I can barely sit still, BSG returns in about a month. What a long wait it has been. Thanks to Lattaddict inspiring me with her excitment over her colloection I got the 2nd season of BSG today, yay! So far I've had a peak at the deleted scenes, lots of Agama and Tigh that was cut out. Once I got to the Flight of the Phoenix deleted scenes I had to skip the extended one of L/D. Cause really who wants to see that?

I also wanted to express my sadness at the passing of Steve Irwin, he was a great Aussie, and my sympathies go out to his family.
