Right now, a group of 600 industry lobbyist "advisors" and un-elected government trade representatives are scheming behind closed doors1,2 to craft an international agreement called the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)

Why the secrecy? We know from leaked documents3 that the TPP includes what amounts to an Internet trap that would:

Criminalize4 some of your everyday use of the Internet,
Force service providers to collect and hand over your private data without privacy safeguards5, and
Give media conglomerates more power to fine you for Internet use,6 remove online content—including entire websites—and even terminate7 your access to the Internet.
Create a parallel legal system of international tribunals that will undermine national sovereignty and allow conglomerates to sue countries for laws that infringe on their profits.

The TPP's Internet trap is secretive, extreme, and it could criminalize your daily use of the Internet. We deserve to know what will be blocked, what we and our families will be fined for.... Go to the site for more and PLEASE sign the petition if you haven't already.

Signed. I've been following TPP, but its details are being kept as secret as possible. (So we know they're up to no good.) I haven't seen anything specific about how it will affect the internet. I'll have to find out more. Thanks for this, Kevin.
