Seems to become a hot topic ... there was this morning an article/opinion in the local newspaper.

Mh, change the rules and the game changes ... no more free downloadable Game of Thrones ... go read a/the book ... or be social and watch the show together with friends who each pay a fraction ... someone has to pay for the production ... or play games of your own ... you can't expect the internet to be without any policing forever ... a dark-net might rise Image

btw The American government considers the TTIP a companion agreement to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

It are complex negotiations with many different topics, so it's a bit lame to say 'it is a bad trade agreement', unless it is a typical character trait of yours, than of course it is cool. :D

Anyway, it will replace other existing trade agreements, who might be worse than what they are going to agree on, so it could be better on some points for lots of people. From what I've read it seems to open the market to Asia ... don't know if you have any familiarities with import/export trade at all to voice an opinion that is worthwhile to consider?

cheers,
