Dutch refuse to ratify ACTA, no matter what EU parliament decides
Demands that it be "indisputably shown to be in line with the constitution"
The Dutch government has announced that it will refuse to ratify the ACTA treaty, even if the European Parliament decides to uphold it, "until it has been indisputably shown to be in line with the constitution."
So far, several committees have rejected the proposal, fearing that it is too open to interpretation and could become widely misused if passed into European law. The European Parliament is expected to to reject the bill.
ACTA covers not just IP infringement and digital copyright, but also physical counterfitting. For more details on the bill's contents, read Jas Purewal's piece on ACTA and SOPA, here.
