European Parliament has rejected the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, by a heady 478 to 39, with 146 votes abstaining. While this doesn't mean ACTA can't become a reality elsewhere, it's a smack in the face for companies looking to crack down on internet-based copyright infringement. If ACTA had passed, its definition was so broad that it would mean the use of copyright images on websites could become an illegal act.
