The European Commission is no longer trying to get the anti-piracy treaty ACTA ratified on short term. The committee wants the European Court of Justice will first look at it.
According to European Commissioner Karel De Gucht, there is much misinformation about the ACTA treaty. A ruling of the Court, according to De Gucht would take that away.
The Convention seeks to protect digital copyright, for example, music and movies, but opponents say it restrict freedom of expression and leads to censorship.
In several countries, protests against the ACTA treaty. Last week, the Dutch House refused to agree with the anti-piracy treaty. The Dutch Chamber urged the Cabinet to a judgment of the European Court of Justice.
EU officials say that the treaty is more symbolic, because hardly any changes to current legislation.
