These days there is not much on TV to get excited about. I follow Pan Am, Hart of Dixie, New Girl and Once Upon a Time. But since the smexy Sheriff a.k.a Jamie Dornan in OUAT was killed off, it lost some of its shine for moi. I know very superficial but hey I watch tv to see beautiful people etc..real life is hard enough:)

Recently got to see a clip of  new drama western "Hell on Wheels" and whoa fell slowly in love with it characters that are brought together to building the Trans continental railway. Anson Mount - a great actor who took a shine to Britney Spears` character in the utterly forgettable Crossroads- plays the brooding protaganist (and sometimes very bad man) Cullen Bohannen!  He smokes, drinks and kills "hard" and at the same time is a very attractive character shelled in grief from losing his family in Civil war. He has great chemistry with the excellent Colm Meany as his boss, Common - who plays a former slave, and of course the girl hero widow Lily Bell played by talented Brit newcomer Dominique McIlligott. They have not exchanged much over the past ten episodes but their chemistry conveyed through hawt eyesex is just off the charts! Slow build up and great storylines make for riveting drama. Pity that the show is only back in the Fall.

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

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