The European Parliament’s INTA committee, the lead committee studying the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, has voted to reject
ACTA. The 19-12 vote against the agreement means that all five EP committees
that studied ACTA voted against ratification. I appeared
before the INTA committee’s workshop on ACTA earlier this year and submitted a commissioned report recommending rejection. A final vote in the full European Parliament plenary will be held on July 4th.
