"Mr Albrecht, all in good time! First of all, we have our own methods. We have the parliamentary Legal Service which has issued a clear statement on the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA). The question is not whether it was right or wrong for the Commission to go before the Court of Justice of the European Union. The Commission has done this and it is a question of respecting other institutions, which means allowing them to give us their opinion. I think it is very important for us to ensure that the Court of Justice has the necessary time. Secondly, my group has never said that it is unreservedly in favour of ACTA. We have always made it clear, most recently in April at a large press conference, that we also want the situation to be clarified once again. Unfortunately, the Commission informed us far too late, not until the Wednesday evening before the vote in committee, that it was prepared to make these improvements. In this case, the question is that when a patient goes to hospital with a minor cold, he deserves a proper diagnosis and he also deserves to be cured and not to be left to die. We want to cure ACTA and not to kill it off and that is the political difference between us."@en1
