It always seemed to be doomed once the ECJ got involved, but it's nice for it to be official at last!

Strangely enough the ECJ will still do there examination into if ACTA would violate people's rights etc. which sounds worrying to me, the EPP tried to delay this vote till after the ECJ's ruling and I fear it all is to implement it when none is paying attention (remember the European constitution?).

From what i have read its dead in its current form (at least as far as Europe is concerned) but i don't give it long before a bill along similar themes appears, much more quietly.

TLDR situation going on here but just exactly how would the bill have affected honest, legal browsers such as myself?
