WATCH the Net

This Anti-Counterfeiting TradeAgreement, negotiated in secret, would :
- turn Internet operators into a private copyright police ;
- impose harsh and unfair penalties on users and consumers ;
- harm access to medicines and to essential knowledge in poor countries ;
- inhibit innovation ;
- establish new anti-democratic policy-making that bypass parliaments.

Let's stop ACTA !


Net neutrality means that the Internet has no gatekeeper. It encompasses all the issues related to the circulation of information on the Internet, such as free speech, access to knowledge, copyright or innovation. Thanks to this principle, everyone retain the freedom to access and produce the information they want, regardless of their financial capacities or social status.  Click on the picture below for further information about it :
