Legal While our beloved readers from the United States celebrate their independence (have a good one, guys and girls), the European Parliament has just voted against ACTA with an absolutely overwhelming majority: 478 against ACTA, 39 in favour (and 165 abstentions). I'm raising a coffee to this one, kids.

The responsible commissoner De Gucht already said 14 days ago that he would ignore any parliament decision and only accept the European Court decision.


I don't get it. If the commissioner can ignore parliament's decision, what purpose does the parliament serve?
