The European Parliament voted overwhelmingly against the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) on Wednesday morning, with 478 against, 39 in favor, and 165 abstaining. The United States began pushing the treaty in 2010 to establish an international framework for eliminating counterfeit goods, generic medications, online piracy, and copyright infringement.
The treaty was stalled last month when three of the European Parliament's most influential committees opposed it.
