A couple of months ago, Scomber sung an English adaption of an original song by Karen that protests the behind closed door approach taken by the current ACTA negotiations. The remix is here

If you haven’t heard about ACTA the “The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement”, you will soon, because it has the potential to invade our lives in the most intimate and confronting manner.

ChaosFoot stands for the right of an individuals unfettered free speech and digital privacy.
We do not condone the use of file sharing networks for the purposes of Copyright infringement but believe that these proposed powers are the “thin edge of the wedge” giving Government access to content that should remain personal and private.
The internet has legitimate uses and these should not be swept up into Big Brother’s radar and potentially used to inhibit freedoms that we all take for granted.
One thing to say to any illegal downloaders out there - There are alternatives: its called creative commons licensing. Plenty of good stuff out there that is free and legal. End of rant. The Youtube video can be viewed here.

Here is the lyrics;

I’ve seen it from the outside
but somebody’s pulled the shades
behind locked doors
a monster grows
that’s blinded to the change.

One strike
two strike
three strike
its like
a mark against your name
a faceless man
who’s got a plan
where freedoms not his game

ACTA is a monster
where freedoms not the same
a hollow future promise
from those who wont be named

The online world
it gives us voice
its content cant be blamed
now take control
what’s rightly yours
opinion can’t be tamed

One strike
two strike
three strikes
its like
time repeats again
we fought a war
for freedoms hoare
she’s a bitch but not deranged

ACTA is a monster
where freedom’s not the same
a hollow future promise
where free speech will be slayed.


I understand the right to keep
the spoils from what you’ve made
but tie my hands behind my back
our future wont be saved

reason
can’t be treason
just because you take a side
we all have mouths
and ears to hear
so leave us to decide

ACTA is a monster
where freedoms not the same
a hollow future promise
from those who wont be named

ACTA is a monster
where freedoms not the same
a hollow future promise
from those who wont be named
