VICTORY! ACTA Suffers Final, Humiliating Defeat In European Parliament – Falkvinge on Infopolicy

Today at 12:56, the European Parliament decided whether ACTA would be ultimately rejected or whether it would drag on into uncertainty. In a crushing 478-to-39 vote, the Parliament decided to reject ACTA once and for all. This means that the deceptive treaty is now dead globally.

This is a day of celebration. This is the day when citizens of Europe and the world won over unelected bureaucrats who were being wooed and lobbied by the richest corporations of the planet. The battleground wasn???t some administrative office, but the representatives of the people ??? the European Parliament ??? which decided in the end to do its job beautifully, and represent the people against special interests.

A time for celebration, and preparation for TPPA
