Who's up


The European Parliament rejected a global agreement against copyright theft on Wednesday, handing a victory to protesters who argued that the legislation would punish people for sharing films and music online. The vote marked the culmination of a two-year battle between legislators who supported the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) and its largely young, digitally savvy opponents. Now, the Indian government's decision to ban video-sharing websites looks positively heavy-handed in comparison.


He was the first Indian footballer who crossed the Atlantic to play for the Kansas City Wizards and now Indian football captain Sunil Chhetri has found himself footing a sweet deal with Portuguese club Sporting Lisbon, the same club where Luis Figo and Cristiano Ronaldo announced their arrival on the international stage. Chhetri, who will leave for the Iberian country in two weeks, will be drafted into the club's B side initially. The 27-year-old said he felt like an excited 14-year-old. We don't blame him.


Madonna, celebrated by the world's gay community as an icon, is going to stand up for gay rights again. This time in St Petersburg, where the 53-year-old pop diva is slated to perform soon. She has hinted that she will speak out in protest against a Russian law banning the promotion of homosexuality to minors. Madonna-who famously kissed Britney Spears on national television in 2003- could get undressed before an audience of possible minors. Disrobing, depending on how it is done, apparently might be construed as a promotion of gay sex.
