Title: TPP Threat
Post by: Ruukasu2005 on October 13, 2015, 02:48:20 AM
As some of you may know, the Trans-Pacific Partnership was finalized on October 5 (but not ratified). With its new copyright laws, things are not looking good for 72dpiarmy. I know we are a small community of gamers, artists, and developers here, but I thought we should let our visitors know about it in the forum somehow.

I hoped that you were talking about Twitch Plays Pokemon.

This looks pretty awful. Thanks for bringing it up, I had no idea.

No problem. Hopefully, the mods are aware of this. I think raising awareness and fighting to stop TPP would make Flo proud if he was still living today.

True that. He was all about the pirates.

In case you missed it, worse news: The TPP was signed on February 3. Good news: The TPP is still not ratified, so we still have a chance to stop the deal.

TPP huh?

...Reminds me of the big debates in Germany and the US about ACTA back in 2012 or so... Seems like almost the same. Can't let this happen!

Yes, basically the same in reference to copyright laws, only TPP is far worse. The Atlantic equivalent of TPP is TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership).
