INTA committee rejects ACTA

June 21, 2012
By Ante

The International Trade committee adopted David Martin’s draft opinion which proposes to reject ACTA, with 19 to 12 votes.

Two amendments proposing to give consent to ACTA were withdrawn. An amendment proposing to postpone the vote on ACTA until after the Court’s opinion was rejected with 19 to 12 votes as well.

A huge victory for civil society, Internet freedom, access to medicine and knowledge, and innovative companies. But we are not there yet.

The plenary vote on ACTA will be on the 4th of July. On Independence Day, said David Martin, ACTA’s rapporteur.
