The ACTA dossier has started moving through the European Parliament. The date for the deciding vote in plenary has not yet been set. It is expected that it will probably be in June or July, but that could change in either direction as events unfold.
Before the vote in plenary, the will be votes in the committees. The lead committee is INTA (International Trade), but before INTA delivers its report, there will be opinions from JURI, DEVE, ITRE, and LIBE.
It appears that most of the committees haven’t decided on a time table yet.
However, the Legal Affairs Committee JURI has. JURI will vote on ACTA next week:
April 25 – consideration of draft opinion
April 26 – adoption of draft opinion
In the draft opinion, Gallo invites the INTA Committee to propose to the Parliament to approve the Commission proposal. Yes to ACTA, in other words.
The JURI opinion cannot be amended, so it will only be a straight yes-or-no vote in JURI.
Here are two pieces of analysis of Gallo’s draft, from FFII and EDRi:
I will of course vote no to the draft opinion, but at the moment the outcome in JURI is too close to call.
