And once again – great news for the Europeans! After all, the controversial Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement was officially rejected by the EU Parliament.
The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade agreement has widely been regarded as a legislation which would defend copyright owners but at the expense of public interest, privacy, and civil liberties. That’s why there was no surprise that outfits like the Pirate Party of the United Kingdom were considering the ACTA’s failure a victory for the others, while entertainment industry-resistant outfits celebrated the day. EU Parliament had to use the Lisbon Treaty, for the very first time, to reject ACTA. The result of the vote was amazing: 478 members voted against, 39 in favor, 165 abstained.
However, the lobbying isn’t over. The matter is that the nuances of ACTA may appear under new names, and that the EU Commission claimed that it will try to push the agreement through regardless.
According to the EU Parliament spokesperson, the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement is, most definitely, dead. But the ACTA rapporteur has underlined the need for an alternative way to protect the intellectual property at international level. In other words, we can expect a different proposal in this field soon. The spokesperson pointed out that under the treaties, only the EU Commission has the right of legislative initiative – it means that only it can draft and formally propose legislation.
Of course, overturning the controversial treaty should be considered a small victory, because it took the weight of the Internet to publicize until public opinion over weighed the proposals supporting ACTA.
The British Pirate Party believes that it’s time for the EU Commission to accept mistakes in pushing ACTA and listen to the citizens of Europe. The Party points out that any legislation intended to protect intellectual property should balance the interests of copyright owners and the public. In addition, it is supposed to drive innovation and creativity. This doesn’t just mean providing restrictions on use, imposing penalties or privacy busting measures to curb the sharing of culture. First of all, a lot of people realize that copyright infringement and counterfeiting aren’t the same thing. Secondly, it needs to be consulted on openly and achieve public consent.

|force naaaaah some contry got Constitution that USA can do anything about nor force since they are protected|
|ACTA and Trans Pacific and SOPA etc.all have been rejected but they will and have started to ratify these bills,changing the way they supposedly support the 3 laws around copyrighted materials from 1967 to allow for educational usage etc.in the hope that bullsh1te will baffle brains the next time around and allow them access to police the Internet as is their intent with CYBER,it has all been strategically planned from as far back as the NSA/CIA whitepaper 2001-2011 from the Director of the CIA titled Global Cyber strategy to think that they will not circumvent their first round failures would be to our cost and we should not become complacent and believe that they will give up the Millions already spent on CYBER and the leasing of the UK MOD satellites launched by Ariane in preparation for accomplishing their Goals.|
|As we know cellphones have been monitored now for almost 20 years and CYBER has the Ability to at one location store the entire worlds computer data for up to 30 years at a time,dare we ignore the ongoing threat to the worlds free internet at our peril,when ISP`s start to capitulate with American fascists I for one am going to drop kick my PC bail out and war drive free internet from open EDU servers,neither I nor anyone should have our privacy breached and pay for it and anyone that does capitulate and not boycott them is allowing for the subjugation of everyone else and our loss of freedom.||
