ACTA referred to the European Court of Justice[edit]

Since 22 February, ACTA has been referred to the European Court of Justice. No ruling has been given as of yet. Avaaz claims that the European Commission is trying to manipulate the process

ACTA was denied by EU[edit]

It was dneid and that denail should appear in the first paragraphs, rather than being buried in the text several paragraphs further down. Hope someone could do that. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Enigma foundry (talkcontribs) 04:56, 27 March 2013 (UTC) http://www.europarl.europa.eu/news/en/pressroom/content/20120703IPR48247/html/European-Parliament-rejects-ACTA http://ec.europa.eu/trade/creating-opportunities/trade-topics/intellectual-property/index_en.htm http://www.engadget.com/2012/07/04/acta-rejected-by-european-union-vote/

Can we fix it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.224.2.148 (talk) 23:41, 21 March 2013 (UTC)

We wrote: "On 4 July 2012, the European Parliament rejected the agreement in plenary session" in the lead already. I am not sure it is appropriate to add more regarding a single signatory… L.tak (talk) 00:48, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

The map at the top is somewhat misleading. It claims that EU member states are covered by the EU signature, but this is incorrect. The treaty needs signature not only by the EU, but also by all it's members to cover the EU (member states). Since not all EU states signed, none are covered by the EU signature. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 137.120.181.126 (talk) 11:14, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

Well, they EU signature has a scope which covers those territories. However, to be bound by the treaty more is needed than the signature alone. Also ratification has to take place. It is unclear to me what would happen if the treaty would enter into force for say Germany, but not for the EU (or vice versa). In principle the ratification of the EU only covers those areas where the EU has competence, which means the treaty would have partial effect in Germany, in the same manner that the Cape Town Treaty has effect in the Netherlands only for those parts of the treaty that are EU territory, but not others (insolvency) which are determined by national law.

"It is unclear to me what would happen if the treaty would enter into force for say Germany, but not for the EU (or vice versa)." According to the website of the EP http://www.europarl.europa.eu/sides/getDoc.do?pubRef=-//EP//TEXT+IM-PRESS+20120220FCS38611+0+DOC+XML+V0//NL "Cyprus, Estland, Slowakije, Duitsland en Nederland zouden dan het akkoord nog moeten tekenen en alle lidstaten zouden ACTA moeten ratificeren voor het in werking kan treden in de EU. " (Cyprus, Estonia, Slovakia, Germany and the Netherlands will have to sign and all member states need to ratify the treaty before it can come in to force in the EU). Therefore I conclude that no EU member state is covered by the EU signature, until all of them have signed (and ratified) the treaty. So not even signatory states within the EU are covered by the EU signature. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 137.120.181.126 (talk) 17:09, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
Well, they would probably coordinate their ratifications to avoid the situation I suggested, but their is no provision in the treaty that says so... Anyway: you are welcome to suggest a rephrase, that takes into account the signature-situation as it presently stands.... L.tak (talk) 19:10, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

Broken links[edit]

Several of the external links are broken, including the link to the DFAT site and both links to the full text are broken. The full text links are of particular importance as they are the topic of the article, so hopefully someone could find a new copy and link to it? Felixphew (talk) 01:24, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected links on Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement which have been added to the blacklist, either globally or locally. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed or are highly inappropriate for Wikipedia. The addition will be logged at one of these locations: local or global If you believe the specific link should be exempt from the blacklist, you may request that it is white-listed. Alternatively, you may request that the link is removed from or altered on the blacklist locally or globally. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. Please do not remove the tag until the issue is resolved. You may set the invisible parameter to "true" whilst requests to white-list are being processed. Should you require any help with this process, please ask at the help desk.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:
