The Dutch, who are known for sorting out the UK’s Irish question by loaning their King, went further and told the American entertainment industry to get out. The country is almost certain to vote against the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (better known as ACTA).
The Dutch Competitiveness Council will look at a motion by Kees Verhoeven and Afke Schaart, after which the motion will be voted on in the House. The experts predict that the Kees Verhoeven's motion will be adopted by a majority of the House, because the latter has already slammed the controversial ACTA treaty. The local press has been discussing the issue, saying that the motion means the country will finally tell the entertainment industry to “bog off”.
ACTA agreement was originally intended to fight the trading of counterfeit products. The list included downloads of music, film and software, which fall under copyright protection. Everyone understands now that the agreement will most likely have a rough ride in the European Parliament. However, Kees Verhoeven isn’t going to wait, and their motion will kill off the anti-piracy agreement regardless of whether the European Parliament would vote for it or against.
Thus far, the Dutch government has already waived putting a signature on the agreement under pressure from the House. Meanwhile, the industry experts expressed some concerns, one of them being that the provisions of the agreement go against fundamental human rights and provide too much political power to the creative industry.
According to the motion, online freedom and privacy of citizens and businesses will be in real danger from ACTA.

Err.........What?....Do the Irish and UK Governments know that?
|@ Boghound: This might be a refference to a historic event; look up the "glorious revolution" or something like that, in Ireland.|
I'm not certain that this is what was meant, but it's possible - and if I remember my history lessons in school correctly, back then the UK, Ireland and Scotland were governed by the Dutch king... it's been decades ago that I was last in school, though, so my memory might be a bit dodgy on remembering what I learnt back then.
About the articlw here, great that those politicians now say no, but there is a good chance that our government simply come up with the same thing under another name and description, and still cram it down our throats - Dutch politicians are real good at that sort of thing; examples ranging from the Dutch saying no to a European-dictated constitution, which got renamed, reworded and shoved down our throats like we were catholic schoolgirls at a tentacle hentai convention, to the European single coin, to several other things...
I for one am keeping my fingers crossed and hoping we won't get shafted the same way with a renamed and re-worded ACTA, but realistically I'm well aware that they probably already have a renamed version ready to rape us Dutchies with.
Let's face it, Dutch politicians version of doing stuff is turning to the Dutch people going "Ohhhh lookie here, we have a nice big warm turd for you to eat", and when the Dutch people say no to that, those politicians will quickly put that turd on a different plate and go "Ohhhh hey you like chocolate cake, right? We have this huge chucolate cake for you, and you HAVE to eat it!"
