Submission + - European Parliament all but rejects ACTA (

An anonymous reader writes: European Parliament today adopted Written Declaration 12/2010 ( which basically tells the Commission to all but drop the negotiations. From the article:"Citizens from all around Europe helped to raise awareness about ACTA among Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) by collecting, one by one, more than 369 signatures. With Written Declaration 12/20103, the European Parliament as a whole takes a firm position to oppose the un-democratic process of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agremeent (ACTA), and its content harmful to fundamental freedoms and the Internet ecosystem."
