[GlobalPost] European Union sends ACTA to Europe's highest court for a decision

The European Union is sending the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, known as ACTA, to Europe's highest court for a decision, the Associated Press reported. [...]

"We are planning to ask Europe's highest court to assess ACTA's compatibility with the EU's fundamental rights and freedoms, such as freedom of expression and information or that of protection," De Gucht told reporters at a press conference, Reuters reported. [...]

"No legal debate can fix ACTA or give it a legitimacy that by design it cannot have," said Jeremie Zimmermann, co-founder of the Internet advocacy group La Quadrature du Net, according to the Huffington Post.
