    In Secret, Nations Work Toward Crackdown on Piracy

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/02/08/technology/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.â€

    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.
