When SOPA and PIPA, the House and Senate bills to impose draconian regulations on the internet in the name of "protecting intellectual property rights" broke through into public awareness late last year, it caused an immediate, widespread, grassroots protest movement to rise up. With some of the biggest websites on the internet staging a one-day blackout to raise awareness of the legislation, millions were mobilized against it. So loud was the opposition to these bills that they were postponed on the legislative agenda and effectively killed off. Now, a new multinational trade deal nicknamed the "TPP" is being worked out behind the scenes to resurrect many of these same measures. Find out more in this week's edition of the Eyeopener.

Citizen. org's has an important and rich-content section about the TPP as well. And the main page (table of contents sort of page) about the TPP says that the "Closed-door talks are on-going between the U.S. and Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, Malaysia and Vietnam; with countries like Japan and China potentially joining later". So the TPP clearly is far from involving only Pacific countries, or them and the US. Lori Wallach says it's very dangerous.
Though it doesn't mention or very barely mentions the Internet, DemocracyNow. org uploaded a very good and important interview on 14 Jun 2012 about the TPP, Trans-Pacific Partnership. The interview is with "Lori Wallach, director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch", cited from the DemocracyNow. org page for the video. watch?v=_4eZcm4ZO6o

SOPA & PIPA weren't really killed off...they were just mutated & reincarnated as CISPA. This is so similar to how Senator Aldrich Bill & Federal Reserve Act transpired.

@3:30 had James just finished eating a sandwich lol
I agree!
That's exactly the idea - to "eliminate the public from debates altogether". The wealthy want their power back from the useless eaters. When they get tired of playing footsie they fully intend to use brutal force - their beloved "police state".
