Yes. Exactly. Actually, from EU only Germany and Holland has not
signed ACTA yet. Would be good to make a search on which stage there
are formal discussions in these countries. In many countries - also in
Poland, the ACTA formal discussion was made semi-secret - I mean,
theoretically they were not secret, bo goverment made evrything to
hide it from eyes of its own citizens. The ratification in EU
Parliament was originally planned at June, but due to "strike" of
Kader Arif it might be 1-2 months later. Before that there will be
ratification debates in local EU-countries parliaments.
