ACTA signed, not yet sealed – now it’s up to us →

January 27th, 2012

You can learn more about ACTA here. One of the main concerns is that it’s another attempt to punish people based on accusations without due process and without processes for accused to defend themselves.

ACTA has made it past the UK government with no input from stakeholders (e.g. the public) or discussion by parliament. The trade agreement is now in the European Parliament, so we should now get a chance to prevent it being put in place. Apparently it will be discussed some time after June.
