ACTA Treaty Receives Further Criticism [bbc.co.uk]
The president of the European Parliament has criticised the controversial Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (Acta).

Mr Schulz said that the balance between copyright protection and the individual rights of internet users "is only very inadequately anchored in this agreement".

The recently elected president of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, has criticized the current ACTA treaty, saying it provides little protection for the rights of individual users.

"I don't find it good in its current form," Schultz said in an interview with Germanyís ARD television station on Sunday. The current treaty swings too heavily in favor of copyright holders, he said, and an individualís internet freedoms "is only very inadequately anchored in this agreement."

Schultzís own party, the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats, has come out against ACTA, and the German government announced on Friday that it was going to hold off on ratifying ACTA until after the European Parliament has voted on the issue. That vote is scheduled in June, after the European Parliament's trade committee has scrutinized it.
