I call Internet Hitler! Who wants to be my Goebbels?

Also, we need someone to build the concentration camps for Furries.

To be honest, the language sounds quite ambiguous...

Things like "knowing" may not be as easy to define as you think...
your example of Xerox 'knowing' that their machines are being used for
copyright infringement doesn't cut it. To know is, in some manner, to
be witness, if you have not seen it happen you can't know. You can
"believe" that copyright infringement happens at Kinkos, but you don't
necessarily "know".

I haven't read the whole things, but it sound like political speak so
far: "intentionally ambiguous" to leave a lot of wiggle room...

I'm in! :smiley:

Exactly - the "fascism" rhetoric is a little overblown, but there's
still a concern. Especially since, unlike the Xerox example, it's
*technically* possible for an ISP to "know" quite a bit more about
what users are doing. For example, would the treaty mandate deep-
packet inspection to catch filesharers? Maybe backdoors in encrypted
communications channels? Nobody knows, but the fact that even the
*text* of the treaty has (apart from leaks) been secret doesn't help
people feel comfortable about it...
