Earlier, we mentioned that a bill from the Mexican Congress opposing ACTA was going to the full Congress today, and apparently the bill was approved. Now, the question is whether or not the Mexican executive branch will try to ignore the will of Congress on this issue and sign ACTA anyway. And, some will undoubtedly point out that this isn't quite as strong as it might have been, as it wasn't a separate vote, but the Mexican Congress rolled up a few different bills into one because they were "running out of time." I'm not sure I want to comment on what I think of a legislative body doing something like that.
