The movie and music cartels have virtual carte blanche in Canada and the US, but the European parliament has told them it, not corporate might, holds sway, voting overwhelmingly 663 to 13 against the entertainment industry inspired Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, aka ACTA.

“This Parliament will not sit back silently while the fundamental rights of millions of citizens are being negotiated away behind closed doors”, said Stavros Lambrinidis (GR, S&D) (right) who, with Zuzana Roithova (CZ, EPP), Alexander Alvaro (DE, ALDE) and Françoise Castex (FR, S&D), made the message clear in their earlier written declaration opposing ACTA.
“We oppose any ‘legislation laundering’ on an international level of what would be very difficult to get through most national legislatures or the European Parliament,” he said.

And “MEPs will go to the Court of Justice if the EU does not reject ACTA rules, including cutting off users from the Internet ‘gradually’ if caught stealing content”, European parliamentarians told Vivendi Universal, EMI, Warner Music and Sony Music, and Disney, News Corp, Time Warner, Viacom, NBC Universal and Sony Picture, says EurActiv


Given the undemocratic methods being used to try to slip this peice of monopoly legislation in this is a loud voice saying "NO" lets just hope the media monopolists get the message that not every politician is for sale and back away before things turn nasty for them.

That's very good news. At last politicians have told the cartels you don't make international law.
