Thanks to the many people who took the time to create videos for the C-61 in 61 Seconds video competition. The judges have reviewed all the submissions and selected three as their top choices: Kill Bill (C-61), Bill C-61's Bizarre Digital Lock Rights, and La Petite View Numerique/The Simple Life in Digital Era. Each of the winning videos is embedded below and a complete list of videos can be found here.
ACTA 1.0. IP Traceback to end anonymity
Michael, here is some more ACTA stuff:

“A United Nations agency is quietly drafting technical standards, proposed by the Chinese government, to define methods of tracing the original source of Internet communications and potentially curbing the ability of users to remain anonymous. ”
“The U.S. National Security Agency is also participating in the “IP Traceback” drafting group, named Q6/17, which is meeting next week in Geneva to work on the traceback proposal. Members of Q6/17 have declined to release key documents, and meetings are closed to the public.”
“Members of Q6/17 have declined to release key documents, and meetings are closed to the public.” – this sounds too familiar to me.
One comment for those advocating trust in the government:
“This story needs to be spread far and wide, it poses a very real threat to our privacy, protection from unreasonable limits on our freedom, and our constitutional rights. Anyone who believes we can trust our government, much less an international body like the UN, to protect our rights, has not been paying much attention lately. Voices of political dissent will be the first thing targeted by this legislation, the internet has provided the only means for alternative viewpoints which are sorely lacking in the mainstream media. This is just one step to silence anyone who is telling the truth about government.”
And this comment from the page above explains it very well:
“What is the UN? A club of 80% of the worlds most repressive, corrupt regimes, Using every measure to stay in power.”
Great way to treat the UN… and your local government too.

First video now private
Any idea why the first video was made private?
Seems ironic that I can’t actually watch the winning entry. What’s up?
