European Parliament votes to reject ACTA

PanARMENIAN.Net - The European Parliament has voted to reject the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), BBC News reported.

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.

MEP David Martin said: "It's time to give [ACTA] its last rites."
