It's called ACTA, and it hasn't made it's presence known yet to most.

Most of the people involved with it want it to be a secret until it's ratified as a treaty (that's a good way to make an unpopular law valid, without popular vote). The details are actually a national secret, only the gov insiders, MPAA, RIAA, and big business donators are allowed to be involved.

Apparently you are confusing this forum with "The Lounge" which is where political threads belong.

MPAA?
RIAA?
PTB?

And I don't see what's the problem...

<Shrug> I figured that the US cutting off a major export from a small country, solely to force copyright extension/enforcement, was newsworthy.

When corporations do it, it's called 'tied selling' and made a competitions violation; when governments do it, it's called 'negotiation'...
