European Parliament trade committee recommends rejecting ACTA copyright treaty

The committee also decided not to postpone the full parliamentary vote on the treaty

The European Parliament's trade committee, INTA, voted on Thursday not to postpone a crucial parliamentary vote on the controversial Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement.

The committee also decided, by 19 votes to 12, to recommend to the Parliament that the trade deal be rejected. INTA is the lead committee examining the international agreement, and its recommendation will carry weight with the rest of the Parliament.

The Parliamentary plenary vote on the treaty is now scheduled for July 3.
