Speaking after David Martin MEP's seminar on ACTA and the UK, Jim Killock, Executive Director of the Open Rights Group said:
"ACTA would be a blow for democracy, and must be rejected. The EU Parliament has a duty to stand up for civil liberties and seek better proposals on copyright and patent enforcement. ACTA endangers trade in cheap medicines, as well as our free speech online.
"The [Edinburgh] debate was surprising and well-informed. We hope David Martin MEP holds firm to his views."
