ACTA

Have a look at what the European Commission has to say about ACTA.
http://ec.europa.eu/trade/creating-opportunities/trade-topics/intellectual-property/anti-counterfeiting/

They say ACTA is not for monitoring individual Internet usage nor will they shut down websites. Sounds okay, but -----

It sounds to me as if YouTube will be in trouble. I don't know how livejournals and tumblrs will be affected. Caps, icons, videos - are they all "infringements" of intellectual property laws? What about fan fiction?

I've had such enjoyment over the last few years using lj, finding friends I never would in RL, browsing tumblrs for pics and reading fan fiction. It's wonderful that people can share so much through these forums. To be cut off would be so hard.
