The European Parliament is preparing to take on ACTA

joint resolution (PDF) has been tabled by the major European Parliament parties that threatens to go to court unless things change. The parliament is calling for public access to negotiation texts and rules out further confidential negotiations. Moreover, the parliament wants a ban on imposing a three-strikes model, assurances that ACTA will not result in personal searches at the border, and an ACTA impact assessment on fundamental rights and data protection.

Nathan Torkington recently posted a summary of New Zealand’s standpoint on ACTA based on leaked documents.
