A section of the internet portion of a secret Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement has leaked onto the web (how ironic) and basically states that the rules governing copyright on the internet will deem you (and your family and anyone else using your ISP) guilty immediately upon suspected infringement of copyright and cut off all access to the web. As access to the web is increasingly considered a legal right (Finland goes as far to consider broadband a legal right) I think this agreement is clearly in violation of our rights as Americans! Check out what exactly this entails in the words of Cory Doctorow.
