Submission + - ACTA rejected by European Parliament (bbc.com)

swinferno writes: The European Parliament has voted to reject the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (Acta).

The proposed agreement sought to curb piracy, but internet campaigners said it posed a threat to online freedoms.

The rejection vote followed a failed attempt to postpone the decision because of ongoing investigations into Acta by the European Court of Justice.

The votes were: 478 against, 39 in favour and 165 blank.
