Not all of their servers are based in the US.

That's a very very good law. And I'm pretty sure they can do it because they also operate in the EU, targeted in that market.

it is just we want to apply the informatique and liberty law that exist since many years allowing us to change, delete or add information on ourselves regardless if the state or a corporation has those informations.

Good, a person should have the right for a secure and complete deletion of their data.

Forgetting the whole piracy thing, i'm quite proud of Europe's stance towards a better internet infrastructure and privacy laws. I think that's the one thing I can thank Brussels for.

I am jealous of the concerns that Europe have facing privacy, something that the US just has not looked into/taken seriously at all.

I also feel like an opt-in campaign should be standard on most of these websites as opposed to the current opt-out situation we have.

Sometimes there are little things that make you proud of your own continent.

But it is screwed governmentally speaking, so I'm still angry.

I believe Megaupload's servers were in the U.S.

I think the planet should vote on a law that the USA no longer gets to make laws concerning the internet.

This one sounds good however
