The EU has suspended the ratification of a controversial anti computer piracy agreement, questioning its legality. It will now be investigated to see if the document is compatible with human rights and freedoms.

Known as ACTA, the bill has been heavily criticised by web freedom activists, sparking multiple protests across Europe. If passed, the legislation will allow customs officers at airports to examine all devices that may contain pirated data. The authorities will also gain unlimited access to private digital information.

So far, 22 EU countries have signed up to the deal which was negotiated in secret.

Bob Beschizza, from the online magazine and blog Boing Boing believes the law punishes those who use sources legally, while failing to battle online piracy.
