Hephaestus was the first of a few of you to point out that the EU advisory body in charge of making sure various European laws comply with EU data protection and privacy regulations has slammed ACTA for violating those rules and violating "fundamental" privacy rights. So much for the claims that ACTA won't go against EU law, huh? The report is pretty damning, and shows growing opposition across a wide spectrum of groups in the EU. And we're hearing growing protests in the US as well, even from groups that support stronger intellectual property. There are more and more indications that the farce that is ACTA may finally be starting to crumble.
