In Secret, Nations Work Toward Crackdown on Piracy

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/02/08/te.../08piracy.html

“You’d think it was nuclear weapons kind of stuff, not intellectual property law,” said Eddan Katz,
international affairs director at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which campaigns against regulation
of the Internet. “The fact that there are 30 or 50 people sitting around a table deciding the laws of the
world’s nations, when there are major areas of disagreement, seems like a wholesale contravention of
the democratic process.”

Mores the point - when it comes to the USA there are no such things as democracy or justice! both can
be purchased by large corporations that have more rights than humans.
