We're now a few weeks into "open season" on the final final version of ACTA, so expect to see random stories planted by certain folks about how "important" it is to sign the document and "live up to our international obligations." Most of the countries involved will likely sign, unfortunately, but it looks like there's at least some protest in Mexico. SinkDeep points us to the news that a Senator has introduced a bill instructing the government not to sign the agreement (Google translation from the original Spanish). I have no idea if this sort of proposal is likely to get any traction, but it's at least nice to see some concern from politicians.
