EU Parliament Blocks ACTA

Category: eGovernmentTeknovis @ 6:37 pm

Great news today – the EU parliament has blocked Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA)! For further details see Anti-piracy treaty voted down.

This must be embarrassing for the Irish Government (amongst others)!

It is also a great example of how giving more power to a democratically elected EU parliament is good! This is thanks to the Lisbon Treaty!
