ACTA Treaty Gets a Further Set Back With ITC Rejection
[theverge.com]
The controversial Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) has been rejected by the International Trade Committee. Made up of Members of the European Parliament (MEPs), the committee voted 19 against and 12 in favor with no abstentions. The ITC vote will now act as a final recommendation to the European Parliament when it makes its final decision in early July. Many have expected ACTA to fail for some time now, and today's events make the parliament's decision almost a certainty.

It wasn't a long term solution, it was a band-aid, and a long term solution not dependent on the whims of any single governing body is still needed. The internet is global, the solution needs to scale and this wasn't it, imo.
