There isn’t long to stop it.
EVERYONE NEEDS TO SIGN THIS PETITION RIGHT NOW WHILE YOU STILL HAVE THE INTERNET TO DO SO
Tony Abbott is about the sign off on possibly the worst power grab we’ve ever seen. The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP)
If he signed this, your internet provider would be FORCED to POLICE YOUR ACTIVITY, and report everything you do online. There would be NO anonymous browsing, no “incognito” modes, no torrenting, no file sharing, NOTHING. Fanfics, fanarts, fanvids, ANYTHING thought to breach ANY kind of copyright, even in a completely harmless way, would be reported, and after THREE STRIKES, you WILL BE SENTENCED.
You thought SOPA was bad? That is NOTHING compared to the TPP.
SIGN THIS NOW
I recommend doing some reading and learning more about this, because this has the potential to affect all of us in a big way.
Can I just point out that Australia doesn’t have the capacity to actually enforce large amounts of this. And this crap comes up time and again, it would cost the man too many votes to actually have this pushed through. It’s against constitutional law… I think we’re okay.
