MPAA Asks If ACTA Can Be Used To Block Wikileaks

An anonymous reader writes “With the entertainment industry already getting laws to block certain sites, it appears they’re interested in expanding that even further. The latest is that at a meeting with ACTA negotiators in Mexico, an MPAA representative apparently asked if ACTA rules could be used to force ISPs to block ‘dangerous sites’ like Wikileaks. It makes you wonder why the MPAA wants to censor Wikileaks (and why it wants to use ACTA to do so). But, the guess is that if it can use Wikileaks as a proxy for including rules to block websites, how long will it be until other ‘dangerous’ sites, such as Torrent search engines, are included.” Note: TechDirt typically has insightful commentary, but make of the original (Spanish) twiiter message what you will.
