INTA committee rejects ACTA
June 21, 2012
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Two amendments proposing to give consent to ACTA were withdrawn.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.
