Submission + - European Parliament Presses For Final Vote on ACTA (

CrystalFalcon writes: The European Parliament has decided to not wait for a legal opinion on ACTA from the European Court of Justice, but presses for a final vote for or against it, possibly in as little as ten weeks. There is no more years-long delay: if we want to kill ACTA, the last chance is right just now.

If ACTA passes, the copyright and patent monopolies will be set in stone for the coming decades, just like happened with TRIPS. We need reform in these areas, badly, and therefore, ACTA needs to die.

Leveraging always beats prototyping.
