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Two amendments proposing to give consent to ACTA were withdrawn.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.
