Now It's Switzerland's Turn To Call ACTA Into Question

TheGift73 writes "Good news via Switzerland

When discussing ACTA, there's a natural tendency to concentrate on the bigger players — the US or the EU — but it's important to remember that there are many other countries involved. One of those is Switzerland, which has just joined the doubters' club by holding off from signing ACTA. Here's why (French original):

"Since the conclusion of the negotiations, the criticisms regarding ACTA have multiplied in various countries. The [Swiss] Federal Council takes these fears seriously since they concern fundamental liberties and important points of law."

As a result, Switzerland will not be signing ACTA for the moment. Instead:

"The Council will re-examine the question when new elements on which it can base its decision are available. These elements could include the deliberations of the five EU countries that have delayed signing ACTA, the results of the referral to the European Court of Justice by the European Commission, or the continuation of the EU's ratification procedure.""
