Lawmakers in Holland have voted to strike down the international Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA). Members of the Dutch parliament ruled no such agreement will ever be signed by the government.
The Dutch parliamentarians have opted not to wait for the EU’s vote on ACTA which is set for June, with consultations kicking off already this Thursday.
"The treaty should be taken off table, whatever the decision the European Parliament should take," said MP Kees Verhoeven, a major sponsor of Tuesday’s motion in the Dutch Parliament.
