[V3.co.uk] Leaked ACTA document reveals push for criminal sanctions

A leaked document published by French advocacy group La Quadrature du Net shows that European Union member states are pushing for criminal sanctions to be added to the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) on copyright infringement.

"The leaked document shows that EU member states are willing to impose prison sanctions for non-commercial uses of copyrighted works on the internet as well as for 'inciting and aiding', a notion so broad it could cover any internet service or speech questioning copyright policies," said Jérémie Zimmermann, co-founder of La Quadrature du Net.
