Implant itself in your HDD? They'll have a hard time doing that. Security programs would chuck a fit. Especially ones like Avira, with paranoid heuristics. I don't have a problem with anti-piracy in principal, it's the right thing, in a way, but when it stars affecting legitimate customers like myself, I get annoyed.

Let them try.

The U.S. Gov seems to be taking a stance similar to Mark Zuckerburg's (Facebook's founder guy if you don't know) stance on privacy: in this day and age, there is no such thing as "privacy."

Watch as all of the tech-savvy people wipe their HDs and install Linux or something like that to circumvent it.

How would installing linux help?

If they tried to do it to Windows Vista, you can except UAC to go berserk and rage every second.

Um... Bill Gates doesn't work for Microsoft anymore... he retired in July of 2008.

What's more worrisome about this is that this would provide a means (and most likely set precedent) for United States police to search your house without a warrant. :\

Pretty much, they just want control in my eyes, just like the patroit act, Obama said he was going to get rid of it but yet he keeping it and now this?

Time to initiate total lockdown. My pa takes care of guns and locks and bomb shelters, and I take care of the firewalls and proxies and external hard drives.

ACTA has a reasonable chance of passing, especially since it's a trade agreement and the legislature has little say over it, and its implications are enormous. The internet has given a voice to millions of people worldwide, and ACTA would take this voice away from them. ACTA would severely limit the freedoms that many of us enjoy every day on the internet.

If you wish to fight ACTA, there are two things you can do right now to help: get the word out about it, and donate to the Electronic Frontier Foundation, an organization that has worked against this kind of legislation for years. A link to their site is in my signature at the bottom of this post.

This isn't just a problem in the United States; our government is strong-arming other governments into accepting it as well. We need to act now; if ACTA passes, it's too late.

Security programs would whitelist any software required by the government.

If they tried to do it to Windows Vista, you can except UAC to go berserk and rage every second.
UAC only appears when doing an action that requires administrative action; usually this means when installing something or changing system files. It might prompt upon installation, but if it's distributed through Windows Update (a possibility), it could easily bypass UAC altogether.

the government would have bill have to allow it to the UAC and any other program i believe if he didn't it be a crime they all get fined 7831465971834591378456987134 dollars.
This is basically how it would happen. Non-compliance would result in hefty fines until their software is implemented.

Well, it seems the United States is against its own foundation, the Constitution.
:/

This won't go over well.

EDIT (9:33 PM): I just realized something. I doubt they could still do much about people using legit business (more than one activation) keys. It's still legit.

Ziraider, It's been over 30 days since someone last posted in this thread and that classifies it as being dead.
