ACTA is back

By | July 10, 2012
…this time, it's called CETA.

Will they ever give up? How many times do we have to say 'no' before it is understood? Compare the two texts – the website does a good job helping you on that – with a few exceptions, it looks like a good candidate for what academics would call plagiarism. +Susanne Ramharter and +Moan Lisa, it looks like we have to cork the champagne bottle again, no more ACTA celebrations!

ACTA lever!
Fast under CETA namnet.

Något av en katastrof för Europas medborgares förtroende i EU's parlamentariska process och för förtroendet i de förtroendevalda politikerna vars jobb är att representera sina väljare.

CETA ligger inte i någons bästa intresse förutom vissa få storföretag.
