ACTA supporters take out their anger on the Danish Patent & Trademark Office

Today ACTA supporters hacked the Danish Patent and Trademark Office to show their respect of the people demonstrating against the treaty. The Office has a post on their official blog on the subject.

The interesting part is that arguments about patents, trademarks and designs have been almost nonexistent in the Danish ACTA debate – apart from a few persons arguing that African access to medicines will be harmed. So why attack the patent office. Since the ACTA crowd is often linked to the open source crowd could it be payback from the debate about software patents? And how can a privacy breach be a display of respect?
