Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement

There is an agreement in the works that encourages international copyright enfringement cooperation, makes infringement punishable without a complaint from rightholders, and vastly expands the power of customs to seize suspected infringing material. It also, according to BoingBoing, the outlaws P2P file transfer, regardless of transfered content. This is outrageous. Of course, it also wants ISPs to help, and assures immunity. Disgusting.
