ACTA is a secret treaty where the future is being defined for laws surrounding how you and I may use the internet and how cultural essentials like music, books and movies can be accessed digitally. It is obviously going to have a huge impact, and governments all over the world are scrambling to implement key enablers to ratifying it, such as "three-strikes" internet disconnection measures and the UK's Digital Economy Bill.
