Also, the internet is much more powerful than you think. Have you ever heard the phrase "information is power"? Read some Sun Tzu. All the greatest military geniuses have known for centuries that simple fact: who controls knowledge, controls how people think, and thus, controls how they act. Who controls knowledge controls everything. And the internet is a flood, nay, a tsunami of information and knowledge. Do you think corporations spend billions on PR-campaigns just for fun? Just because they like to maintain a reputation? No, they do it because they know that their reputation and image translates directly into financial assets. Do you think corporations pay huge sums to people to utilize facespace and other social media to spread PR(opaganda)? It's because the public opinion has power.
SOPA and PIPA got repealed because people took action and spread the word. ACTA, the same. And you sit on your high horse and keep condescendingly talking about "keyboard warriors" and whatever - maybe you feel so powerless yourself, or maybe you're too lazy to actually take action to influence things, and you want to convince yourself that it's ok because no one else can have any influence on anything either. Maybe you like to push others down to pull yourself up. But hey, keep on worshiping your corporations, keep on thinking that if you kiss enough corporate ass some slivers of their wealth and glory will eventually trickle down to you - meanwhile, those of us with some backbone are making things happen.
