Is The US Meddling In Polish ACTA Voting?

With the immediate threat from SOPA/PIPA on hold, people have started to turn their attention to the long-running saga of ACTA. While it was being negotiated behind closed doors, few people knew about it, and protests against it were muted. Now that it has finally emerged into the open and begins its last dash towards the finishing line of ratification, the pace of anti-ACTA activism is beginning to pick up quickly. That's especially true in Europe, where everything hinges on the result of the European Parliament's vote on the treaty later this year. If it rejects it, ACTA is dead. 

On Techdirt.

I have read that ACTA is likely dead; the tide has turned decidedly against it...However, I'm in the States and so may not have the most accurate info.

Sadly, not dead; but it's taken a few more hits in the last week than I expected. Still a long way to go, though...
