[V3.co.uk] Nations agree on final version of ACTA

The text of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) has been finalised after all negotiating nations reached a consensus on the last remaining issues during discussions in Tokyo.

La Quadrature Du Net, a highly vocal opponent of ACTA, recently called for the relevant organisations within governments debating the treaty to oppose its ratification.

"ACTA's bias and lack of legitimacy should compel the legislative bodies of the negotiating countries to strongly oppose its ratification, and acknowledge the necessity to reform patent and copyright law."
