EU Commish: Don’t Act on ACTA

The European Commission, the executive body of the European Union, asked the European Parliament not to vote on the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, or ACTA.

ACTA, which is designed to harmonize international copyright regulations and enforcement, is scheduled for a June vote. But on Wednesday, EU Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht said that there was too much ambiguity and discontent surrounding ACTA to go through with the vote.
