Dutch Parliament Refuses ACTA Secrecy

The Dutch Parliament has set the standard for how countries should address the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. It is refusing to even consider the agreement until all ACTA negotiation texts are published.


  1. All I can say is…

  2. Wow- a government that doesn’t simply sign laws that govern the people until the people know what the laws are!

    That’s a real rarity in this day and age.

  3. So far for the refusing part @ dutch parliament,..

    Good to know
    Thank you for putting this on the web, Tom
    (perhaps you should have mentioned that it hides on page 43 of the pdf file).

    And thousand thanks to you, Michael Geist, for the Dutch rejection info.
    I do hope it is in time to pass it on!!!

  5. Bless you!
