Before and after ACTA (SOPA, PIPA, TPP ETC.)

Am 15. September diesen Jahres haben einige von uns die Veranstaltung "Ein Netz für Alle" der Bundestagsfraktion Die Linke und der Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung in der Vertretung des Landes Sachsen-Anhalt in Berlin besucht.
Die Veranstaltung versprach zwei interessante Keynotes und Diskussionspanels am Puls der Zeit, was die Entwicklungen im und um das Internet angeht. Wir haben den Großteil der Veranstaltung für euch aufgezeichnet und werden, nachdem die Videos aufbereitet sind, euch diese nach und nach zugänglich machen.

Die Panels hielten nicht immer das was sie versprachen, dazu aber später mehr, die Keynotes fanden wir jedoch wirklich gut.

Beginnen werden wir mit dem Release von Glyn Moody's Keynote, der 2. und die hielt er in Englisch.

Glyn Moody - Before and after ACTA


On July 4, the European Parliament voted by a huge majority to reject the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) in one of the most bitterly-fought political battles in recent years. Why did an apparently obscure trade agreement about counterfeits turn into a fight for the soul of the Internet -- and a key moment for the future of European democracy?
This talk will examine the origins of ACTA, and how it forms part of a larger attack on the Internet and on online freedom. It will also consider what ACTA's defeat means for the Internet, digital activism and European politics."
