See/hear Eben Moglen's useful discussion of this important emerging topic for software freedom
If you're a US citizen, write to negotiator working on your behalf on ACTA and express your concerns about how ACTA will enshrine in law protections for outdated business models at the expense of new innovations, internet and software freedoms and the education of the next generation who will be criminalised because of it.
Excellent analysis of the situation from DJWM. The theory goes (from the BSD side of the aisle) that the cost of maintaining an ever-expanding fork forces everyone back to the community eventually. This is a real test both for that theory, and for the GPL side of the aisle who believe publication of source under GPL achieves this goal. In the face of Google's macho "all the smart people work for us" attitude, will either view be upheld?
