#EU: Kroes Throws in Towel on ACTA - Ben Rooney (WSJ)
"ACTA is effectively dead, the European Commissioner for the Digital Agenda admitted Friday. An official spokesman said the “political reality” was the fight was over. Neelie Kroes, speaking at a conference in Berlin, told delegates: “We have recently seen how many thousands of people are willing to protest against rules which they see as constraining the openness and innovation of the Internet. “This is a strong new political voice. And as a force for openness, I welcome it, even if I do not always agree with everything it says on every subject. “We are now likely to be in a world without SOPA and without ACTA.”" - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet
