Submission + - EU to sign ACTA on January 26, but not all lost ye (

rysiek writes: "On a meeting of the Polish Government officials with Polish NGOs and business representatives it was confirmed that European Union is poised to sign the Anti-Couterfeiting Trade Agreement as soon as January 26th. But not all is lost. The Treaty, then, needs to be ratified by the Europarliament and member states individually. Especially the Europarliament ratification vote is important, as it is an either-or vote — if not ratified there, ACTA gets rejected in its entirety (the member states ratification can at most cripple it).

The Ministry of Administration and Digitization is not amused and has asked the Prime Minister (who promised this May to hold ACTA adoption process until the kinks are worked out) to cancel the signing authorization for the time being.

I can haz ACTA-blackout nao? March date for such an idea is being tossed around in Polish NGO community."
