I had this pop up when I went to YouTube last night.

Not only that, I've run into it before and emailed my MEP about it and got a fairly sane response too, saying a number of complaints had been had about it.

Not that an MEP can help much once Brexit happens.

I guess it not be a problem if we not part of EU anymore. Seems like a good thing really if this is the stunts they continue to do!

Probably more likely something used to make british people want the brexit, in france i haven't seen ANYTHING like that....

I've heard about it some time ago, I think they called this ACTA 2 or ACTA bis. More or less it concerns copyrights, and intellectual property. It may be a trouble for people using parts of others' work or image, making all kinds of remakes and covers.

This keeps popping up everywhere lately, I don't pay no attention to such things, not like what ever we say matters anyhow is it :lol:

If it fails they would just rename it, say we need it to fight terrorists and save children or some crap and quietly sneak it back in...
