 I'm bringing this topic back because they're going to vote on it by February 2016! The TPP is even WORSE than we thought! Read more here!

Sites like deviantART, YouTube and ours will be either heavily censored or shut down! If you want a free and open internet, sign petitions, write to politicians and make phone calls. Spread the word around, too! Otherwise, we'll lose the internet! T_T

Discuss! :(

I'm pretty sure I've seen stuff like this over ten times now once or twice a year and nothing ever happens, it never amounts to anything. There is literally nothing to be worried about because the government would not allow this to happen, the president would not allow this to happen, they need the internet just as much as we do. I highly doubt the TPP is as powerful as some think.

Fenix, you're wrong. Do some research and you'll see what I am talking about. :(

Eh I'm not worried, you can't honestly expect the whole United States government to agree with this can you? When has the Government ever agreed on anything?

I keep seeing the word "copyright" come up.  If I remember right, the Trans-Pacific Partnership was something that was meant as a counter to China, and China certainly plays things fast and loose when it comes to intellectual property rights.  I could see how that could be perverted for use against individual users, but I also haven't heard that much yet from groups like the ACLU here in the U.S.  Could be that we will hear from them, and others.

Y'all should be more worried about the fact that the TPP creates a "Congress" outside of the USA that can supersede constitutional rights

Yes, it most certainly will. This bill is PURE EVIL. They will probably pass it though. :(
