Submission + - ACTA Makes Its Way to the EU Parliament (

jrepin writes: "After the huge online protests against the extremist SOPA and PIPA copyright bills discussed in the United States, the EU Parliament starts working on their global counterpart: ACTA, the anti-counterfeiting trade agreement. Citizens across Europe must push back against this illegitimate agreement bound to undermine free speech online, access to knowledge and innovation worldwide. Tomorrow, the EU Parliament “development” committee (DEVE) will hold its first debate on its draft opinion report on ACTA, presented by its rapporteur Jan Zahradil, a conservative, euro-skeptic representative from the Czech Republic. This disastrous draft opinion report is deceptive and tries to justify extremist repressive measures to protect the outdated regime of copyright, patents and trademarks."
