The agreement aims to establish an international legal framework for targeting counterfeit goods, generic medicines and copyright infringement on the Internet, and would create a new governing body outside existing forums, such as the World Trade Organization, the World Intellectual Property Organization, or the United Nations. The agreement was signed in October 2011 by Australia, Canada, Japan, Morocco, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, and the United States.[6] In 2012, Mexico, the European Union and 22 countries which are member states of the European Union signed as well.[7] One signatory (Japan) has ratified (formally approved) the agreement, which would come into force in countries that ratified it after ratification by six countries. Negotiations[edit] The ACTA Internet Chapter: Putting the Pieces To. The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement negotiations continue in a few hours as Seoul, Korea plays host to the latest round of talks.

L’intervention à l’échelle supranationale gomme ces défauts et déroule ses mérites : les débats y sont toujours très juridiques – il suffit de se pencher sur les négociations autour de l’amendement 138 – mais sont surtout éloignés des sphères de contrôle dont on faisait référence ci-dessus. C’est dans ce chapitre qu’on doit évoquer l’ACTA ou Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, accord commercial plurilatéral de lutte contre la contrefaçon. Un texte divulgué en 2010 ?

U.S./International Copyright Treaty Leaked, Trouble Ahead for IS

A U.S. -drafted chapter on Internet use would require ISPs to police user-generated content, to cut off Internet access for copyright violators, and to remove content that is accused of copyright violation without any proof of actual violation.

" For the rest of us, with access to only leaks and whispers of what ACTA is about, there are many troubling questions. How can such a radical proposal legally be kept so secret from the millions of Net users and companies whose rights and freedoms stand to be affected?

Who decides what becomes the law of the land and by what influence? Where is the public oversight for an agreement that would set the legal rules for the knowledge economy? The excuse for using sole executive agreements is that ACTA will be fully respectful of U.S. law. Trade Talks Hone in on Internet Abuse and ISP Liability - PC Wor.

La menace ACTA : pourquoi les bibliothèques doivent s’en préoccu

EFF, libraries: Keep your ACTA out of our Internet! A coalition of digital lobbying groups and library organizations are demanding that the US government drop its support for the most controversial part of the (generally controversial) Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement: Internet-related issues ACTA, currently being negotiated secretly by the US, Japan, Canada, the EU, and others, will cover a host of cross-border concerns. And what could be more cross-border than the Internet? That's why ACTA contains a blank section on Internet issues; the text is still being negotiated, but we already know that copyright holders hope that goodies like ISP filtering and graduated response end up in the final language of the treaty.

Government negotiators refuse to give hints about what sorts of measures they are pushing for inclusion in this key section of the treaty. Untitled.
