ITFreely s02e16: ACTA Your Age
Put on your tinfoil hats everyone, the powers that be are meeting in secret to break the Internet. The Anti Counterfeiting Trade Agreement is being threshed out behind closed doors and could change the way ISP’s work.
We also chat about the Digital Economy Bill that’s currently being rushed through the UK house of Parliament without debate. Seriously guys, stop doing these things in private!
We break off onto a tangent about ownership of songs and multimedia, and come up with the solution to the problem of piracy.
We finish by discussing Sonys plan to disable the ability to install Linux on the PS3, April Fools joke or just a really stupid idea? We ask the question, how long before hackers get around the restriction?
