The president of the European Parliament has criticised the controversial Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (Acta). On German television network ARD, Martin Schulz said of the treaty: "I don't find it good in its current form."

Mr Schulz's comments are a sign that Acta is in "real political trouble", according to Loz Kaye, leader of the Pirate Party UK. "One of the things that's very interesting is that now the Acta agreement is coming under fire from all sides," he told the BBC.
