Background The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) was rejected by the European Parliament on 4 July 2012, by 478 votes to 39, with 165 abstentions. Parliament could not amend the ACTA, but only approve or reject it. Its rejection means that neither the EU nor its individual member states can join the agreement. This position, agreed on the vote on ACTA at the International Trade Committee, was supported by four other Committees during the past months.

ACTA, which was negotiated by the EU, the US, Australia, Canada, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea and Switzerland, was designed to step up the enforcement of intellectual property rights, combat online piracy and prevent imports of counterfeit goods.
