European Parliament votes against ACTA legal review

Anonymous Coward

"...a no vote would obviate the entire treaty"

I don't understand this part. The thing doesn't require unanimity and it comes into force when 6 or more have ratified it. The UK and many others have already signed, so how can the EU Parliament's decision be that decisive?

Still, it would be nice to see the implications debated (would have been nice if UK Gov had had the decency to have that happen here).
