U.S. Working On INTL. Copyright Treaty

Reportedly in secret…a treaty is being hammered out that will allow governments “to search and seize material thought to be in breach in copyright”:

UPDATE:

Ed Morrissey at Hot Air looks into the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), and concludes that there’s something going on, but few places want to report on it:

Conspiracy theory?  Something is happening here, but what?  Maybe our national media might take an interest in it at some point so we can find out exactly what the G-8 intends to do in the name of copyright enforcement.  It might be nothing but spitballing at this point, but this kind of effort belongs in the sunlight, not in the dark.

I have contacted the White House for comment on this story, and I’ll report back in an update if and when they respond.

    “Thought” to be in breach?

    hmmm… this sounds a lot like the same devil-in-the-details of the L.O.S.T. treaty. L.O.S.T. reared its ugly head briefly last month, then quickly went underground again, which reminds me of this one being done in secret.

    what people don’t realize is that “treaties” signed by the Prez that don’t need ratification are the Law of the Land just the same as treaties that do need ratification. not that ratification is a problem with the Obamanist sychophants in congress…
