EU signed controversial ACTA treaty

The European Union has signed today in Tokyo the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA).

Now the treaty can be formally ratified and adopted into law once it has been cleared by the European Parliament.

The treaty contains also enforcement procedures against digital copyright infringement.

In particular ACTA allow to the rights owners to ask to Internet Service Providers (ISPs) informations about their clients , where the latter has a sufficient claim that the user is breaching their copyright.
