Apparently, the liberal (?!) group was the reason ACTA and the Commission’s handling thereof wasn’t harshly criticized. If so, it’s scandalous. I’m awaiting the full vote lists before further comments on that topic.
The final vote in Europarl regarding ACTA adoption happens some time this spring. That’s a strong ray of hope, considering the thin margin that this vote was lost in. This shows that we can achieve results, but only if we put our wood behind this particular arrow and decide to educate Parliament in all and every way about the issue. We know we can, we’ve done this kind of thing before, like with the software patents, telecoms package, and blog registration silliness.
