Has anyone heard about the copyright agreement/law? If not, then look it up on Wiki: ACTA.

I'm actually kind of worried because my friend said that they track your IP Address and there's no escaping it. She said that they sued a 12-year-old girl and so I'm kind of worried.

Does anyone know if its in affect in the United States? Because I read that they are, as of now, fighting against it since it'll bring the country down or something?

Share you thoughts, neh?

-insert worry-

....nnnghh. -worryworryworry-
But you know, pretty much everyone on the internet infringes copyright...right? I really can't bring myself to believe that they're going to try and track down every single person who does this. And if you're under 18, aren't you let off, being dismissed as a child? I know that sounds like I'm trying to protect myself, but sueing a 12-year-old for infringing copyright, who might not even know the big deal about it, is a little ridiculous.

Anyway, you got me worried, and I can only hope it isn't as extreme as it sounds xD;;

Just as Tay said, there's no way they can track down every single person who infringes on copyright. I mean, they can, but the repercussions of trying to catch that many people -- honestly, there are much more important things the government and law enforcement can be doing (trust me, I know -- I'm taking a Crime class at college right now). Also, it's not only stupid, but insane to try and prosecute someone under legal age for copyright infringement. They can argue all they like about the people in question understanding the consequences of their actions, however, in most countries the most they can do is send someone who is still a minor to juvie/somewhere equivalent. (I, however, would not be safe. But I don't share music, I only download anime -- mostly anime you can't buy in America). Also, they are cracking down more on feature-length movie and music sharing than anime, so most of us here shouldn't be too concerned (unless you download music. >_> )

However, it would still be a good idea for everyone here to be prudent about what they download -- moreso than usual.

i'm not too worried about it.
They give you warnings first.
i should know ._.
no i wasn't caught technically, but from downloading anime once i was caught and they send a warning that if i did it again they would take legal action, all i had to do was delete it xD
now i only use direct downloads and stuff, cause torrents=bad luck fr me :'D *this is why i do not use torrents ty*

anyways i've downloaded tons of songs, but its usually from youtube or something loool *using zamzar* so i don't think thats a big issue either since they can't really track me down 8'D

and they can't just shut down the internet, since people would find a way around it anyways. and they make so much money from the internet that most people wouldn't know what to do without it. plus they use the internet for other purposes as well.

and it'd be retarded to track down every ip that they could, they choose randomly from what the can and shut down as much as they can, which is no where near the amount of people doing it lol.
