Loz Kaye on ACTA crash: Politically poisonous to be anti-Internet

Thursday, 5 July, 2012 - 23:00

ACTA which is an international trade agreement is aimed at preventing large-scale intellectual property theft. Critics claim the treaty would threaten people's web freedom. Outside the EU, ACTA has been signed by the US, Canada, Japan and several other countries. Loz Kaye, from the Pirate Party UK, says the rejection by the EU Parliament is a historic victory for citizens over lobbyists.
