Adding up the explanations for ACTA's "shameful secret"

,----[ Quote ]
| Why is an intellectual property treaty being 
| negotiated in the name of the US public kept 
| quiet as a matter of national security and 
| treated as "some shameful secret"?
| Solid information on the Anti-Counterfeiting 
| Trade Agreement (ACTA) has been hard to come 
| by, but Google on Monday hosted a panel 
| discussion on ACTA at its DC offices. Much of 
| the discussion focused on transparency, and 
| why there's so little of it on ACTA, even from 
| an administration that has made transparency 
| one of its key goals.


U.S. Ambassador David Jacobson â Intellectual Property Rights

,----[ Quote ]
| Well, Ambassador, a lot of Canadians donât 
| think U.S. Intellectual Property Laws are in 
| the best interest of Americans or Canadians 
| either. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act 
| of 1998 comes to mind. Do you have any proof 
| (specifically peer reviewed studies) proving 
| that the DMCA has any benefit to the citizens 
| of the United States? And if you donât have 
| any proof, when do you intend to provide it?



Oh, a new ACTA document

,----[ Quote ]
| How do you request it? Very simple, fill out
| the form and enter the document number
| 17779/09 as the document you request. Then
| the Council secretariat has 15 days to
| respond, either it would grant you access
| and submit the reasons for refusal.
| Here is stops for most persons. You have
| against 15 days for a confirmatory
| application. When the confirmatory
| application is denied you can complain to
| the EU-Ombudsman or sue the Commission.


Google DC Talk on ACTA

,----[ Quote ]
| Why does DG Trade want criminal sanctions
| from third nations when these instruments
| are not adopted in the âacquis
| communautaireâ yet? Unfortunately we cannot
| find out in their negotiation mandate from
| the Council because it is not disclosed.
