Parliamentary questions
2 February 2012
Answer given by Mr De Gucht on behalf of the Commission

The Commission refers the Honourable Member to its reply to Questions P‑9179/2010 and E‑001447/2011(1): the European Union and the United States are legally bound to the Anti-Counterfeiting Agreement (ACTA). The Commission also understands that the Legal Service of the Parliament replying to a similar question asked by Mrs Marietje Schaake, confirms that the Contracting Parties which conclude international agreements consent to be bound by the agreement according to the principles of international law, in particular the principle of pacta sunt servanda and the principle of good faith.

On the potential risks for innovation and competition related to the fact that requirements and limitations imposed by diverging enforcement rules between different countries would apply differently to their respective industries, the Commission considers that these will be considerably reduced among the ACTA parties, since their legislation and practices in this area will have to respect the common standards defined therein, which is not currently the case.
