This is about empowering citizens, creators, those who invest in software, video games, movies and television shMay 15 15:39
XFaCEows. This is about protecting their right to protect themselves from those who would steal from them. This is not about the government imposing anything. This is about respecting international law, respecting WIPO and respecting those who wish to protect themselves from those who would steal from them. It is a pretty simple concept.May 15 15:39
