ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Essential ACTA Resources

  • Read more about ACTA here: ACTA Fact Sheet
  • Read the authentic version of the ACTA text as of 15 April 2011, as finalized by participating countries here: ACTA Finalized Text
  • Follow the history of the treaty’s formation here: ACTA history
  • Read letters from U.S. Senator Ron Wyden wherein he challenges the constitutionality of ACTA: Letter 1 | Letter 2 | Read the Administration’s Response to Wyden’s First Letter here: Response
  • Watch a short informative video on ACTA: ACTA Video
  • Watch a lulzy video on ACTA: Lulzy Video

Say NO to ACTA. It is essential to spread awareness and get the word out on ACTA.

If you are in the US, the only thing I know of is this petition, which requires 25000 signatures in 30 days for any sort of response: https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions#!/petition/end-acta-and-protect-our-right-privacy-internet/MwfSVNBK

There are only 3000 signatures right now.

I don't know what options there are in other countries, but again, for the US, I imagine calling Senators would be a course of action. It worked on the surface for SOPA and PIPA, at least, and it at least sends the message that this is not okay.

If you do, though, [personal profile] opusculus notes that it has been signed already so it is probably worthwhile to mention that you know that and are protesting it anyway.

ETA: this tumblr post has more global resources for how you can protest ACTA.

Arashi Kohaku countdown has begun!

Myself and my fiancé just cooked some of our favorite Arashi ni Shiyagare featured dishes (pics after LJ cut) we're both watching the Time DVD and wearing our "Smile in the Beautiful World t-shirts".
I'm SO lucky to have such a great fiancé. Sharing my Arashi obsession with my s/o is something I never thought was possible. He's a diehard Ohno fan and I will forever consider Jun to be my bias.

Only 13 more hours.

I'm so dying to get approved to join Stormy-team. O_O
I seriously need to get my daily dose of Arashi. I've been out of episodes to watch for a while now and I refuse to support certain sites that stole subs without approval. So, as a good fangirl.. I will wait for approval.

12 years of 嵐


12 years of hope.
12 years of pure bliss.
12 years of fandom.
12 years of smiles.
12 years of laughter.
12 years of hardships.
12 years of rainbows.
12 years of undying love.



Omedetou Arashi~,
Today is your 12th aniversary, ofcourse you must know this already.
I've been a fan for quite some time now, and even now hat I am in my twenties, I can feel us growing up together. Getting older and wiser, wanting ifferent things in life. Gaining more recognition and success for what we do.
I love you to death. I will remain a fan even after my hair turns grey. I will be telling my children and grandchildren about my favourite group in the entire world.





Ichiban,

You keep making me smile, even to this day. Not a day goes by where I don't think about you or watch you in some form. I thought things would be different after I had met you, but it only reaffirms what I feel.
Happy 12th anniversary. I hope, I truly hope, you have an amazing day.

I will be posting a lot of random arashi fangirl ramblings, ofcourse. But I will continue my layout work aswell!

(If you want an arashi layout, do let me know!)

As for now, sit back, have patience, and enjoy my ichiban being sexy.
