Germany Refuses To Sign ACTA Amid Protests

Way to go Germany! All it takes is one country to block ratification of ACTA and, as it sits right now, it looks like that country is Germany. cool

In a potentially fatal blow to the Anti-Counterfeit Trade Agreement (ACTA), Germany’s Foreign Office announced today that it will not sign the contentious treaty as protests heat up in 200 cities across Europe.
