Acta eu 220212

A man protests on February 13, 2012 against the controversial Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) in Riga. ACTA was negotiated by the European Union, Australia, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Morocco, New Zealand, South Korea, Switzerland, Singapore and the United States, and is headed to Europe's highest court for a legal opinion. ACTA aims to beef up international standards for intellectual property protection, for example by doing more to fight counterfeit goods. But it is its role on the internet that has fuelled anger online and on the streets.
