You may recall that we recently noted that a Mexican Senator had drafted a resolution to have Mexico refuse to sign ACTA. We weren't entirely sure if the effort would get support, but it does appear to be moving forward. SinkDeep alerts us to the news that a measure was approved to move forward with the proposal and it now faces a full vote (I don't fully understand Mexican lawmaking processes, but it sounds similar to moving a bill out of committee and to a full vote). I would imagine that US diplomats are frantically pressuring Mexican politicians to sign ACTA. How many times do you think that US officials are "warning" about the famed Special 301 list?
