Submission + - Fear Mongering Against the ACTA?

brit74 writes: The past few weeks have seen a lot of commentary on the ACTA (Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement). But, other voices are accusing Geist of using "fear mongering and misinformation" to stir-up moral outrage against the ACTA. Similarly, Doctorow claims that, under the ACTA, "it would be impossible to run a service like Flickr or YouTube or Blogger", yet Google (owner of YouTube and Blogger) has had input on the document. Given that Geist and Doctorow have been in favor of legalized filesharing and against copyright, are we being strung along by voices trying to build opposition to copyright in general?
