The U.S. Trade Representative apparently negotiated in secret a new intellectual property treaty with restrictions far more onerous than SOPA or PIPA to avoid a congressional review and public objections. Imagine, if you will, SOPA with even more restrictions than the bill that was shelved by Congress last week. Now imagine that it’s administered by a shadowy international organization that has no accountability under U.S. law, but can still order your ISP to monitor your personal communications. Finally imagine that this organization can order you disconnected from the Internet and could also order your ISP offline. Welcome to the ACTA treaty.
