European Parliament All But Rejects ACTA 248

An anonymous reader writes "European Parliament today adopted Written Declaration 12/2010 which basically tells the Commission to all but drop the negotiations. From the article: 'Citizens from all around Europe helped to raise awareness about ACTA among Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) by collecting, one by one, more than 369 [of the MEPs'] signatures. With Written Declaration 12/20103, the European Parliament as a whole takes a firm position to oppose the un-democratic process of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), and its content harmful to fundamental freedoms and the Internet ecosystem.'"

Submission + - World of Goo Birthday Sale

An anonymous reader writes: As mentioned previously on Slashdot, World of Goo was ported to Linux. For one more day only, there is a World of Goo Birthday sale. "World of Goo just turned one year old! For this week... pay whatever you think it's worth (normally 20 USD)" For those who game (or wish there were more games) on Linux, now is a good time to show some support to the developers.
