Hi All,

I tried to check if anyone posted about this before I did (sorry if I missed it). According to an artical on GoBoiano the new free trade agreement (still under negotiations) might mean the death of Cosplay and Fan art. Is this true?

Here is the link: http://goboiano.com/original/3219-anime-and-cosplay-fans-could-become-criminals-with-new-international-trade-agreement

... so glad I've started my cosplay for next year

Never heard of it, but if that's true.. that sucks. I swear, all the good things in the world are being taken away.

It was passed/signed by Obama while the whole thing in South Carolina was going on. Basically it would give corporations practically the same power as a sovereign nation. Plus any law in the U.S. such as those designed to help protect the environment could be worked around by corporations thus rendering them meaningless. It would change copyright laws as well so yeah, fan art and cosplay could definitely die out because it will change terms of "fair use."

People already get hell for posting anime related reviews and even AMVs to YouTube because of the content detection system anyway. The company auto-detects that their "content" is used, even if it's used fairly, and bans the video in question. That's ass backwards, but it's the most "effective" system youtube thinks will work. Blergh.

I know Obama approved it, but here in Canada it has not been signed off yet (the farmers are against it and Harper wont budge because he is siding with them). Not sure if we still say no the whole thing will fall apart...

I know a lot of senators tried to get information about it but were kept in the dark even some of those in cabinet positions as well. Oh and the moment foreign military personnel start breaking and entering American homes and seizing firearms, then the illuminati will be confirmed, but I'm fairly convinced that that might happen soon anyways with everything that's been happening. Time to lock 'n load

kozykoop, same here in Canada. Harper refuses to release info. He just called an election so in all honesty, we shouldn't be signing anything until Parliament is back in session. Alot of talk on how bad the whole thing might be for everyone in every aspect. Would be nice if they released info on what exactly we are getting into since we also live here!

I doubt it would happen in Canada, let alone the US. I'm sure they want everything nice done and worked through to a T before anything is brought to the public, but by that point I'd be too late usually. They wouldn't want any interruptions now....
