Very few people here have ever heard of it, outside of those who are tech news junkies. Half the people here have been convinced by political rhetoric that Europe is a semi-communist wasteland that hates economic freedom, never mind the fact that they have never set foot on the continent (or Great Britain, natch) and are grossly misinformed about reality. Plus, we continue to play a game here of whack-a-mole with RIAA pushed internet censorship laws masquerading as copyright protection. As soon as a SOPA bill is beat back, a CIPSA raises its ugly head. So, as terrible as it sounds, most of us here just don't spend much time thinking about Europe, unless we are directly impacted by something there. On the upside, it seems that the opposition to ACTA was a bit late to the party, but is pretty energized. Hope they succeed.
