ACTA-verslagen van het Ministerie van Economische Zaken


The dutch ACTA leak â rough translation


Make 3 strikes bill law, says Simon Cowell

,----[ Quote ]
| The Three strikes law is a corporate music 
| industry scheme and an element of the ACTA 
| project.
| Itâs being introduced as locally proposed 
| legislation by governments in countries such 
| as the UK and France. Under it, governments 
| would act as entertainment industry 
| copyright agents, and ISPs would become 
| industry enforcers against their own 
| customers.


ACTA: why will the EU Commission not answer? 

,----[ Quote ]
| Questions on ACTA in the European Parliament 
| today revealed a distinctly shady 
| Commission, which is giving out conflicting 
| information publicly and privately.  The key 
| issue for MEPs is why the Commission is  
| being  so economical with the truth? 


Help the European Parliament oppose ACTA

,----[ Quote ]
| Four Members of the European Parliament - 
| Zuzana Roithova (CZ, EPP), Stavros 
| Lambrinidis (GR, S&D), Alexander Alvaro (DE, 
| ALDE) and FranÃoise Castex (FR, S&D)- have 
| submitted a written declaration opposing 



ACTA's Internet Chapter Leaks; And, Now We See How Sneaky The Negotiators Have Been

,----[ Quote ]
| Reports spread this weekend that the ACTA's
| all-important internet enforcement chapter had
| leaked. You can download the PDF from that
| link, or check it out below:
| From here, you can see why this is still quite
| a dangerous document -- and why there's been
| so much misinformation from its supporters,
| insisting that it "can't change US law," or
| even (as stated by the USTR) that it won't
| include three strikes. It doesn't. Sort of.
| But it does make it very very difficult for
| any online service provider to get safe
| harbors without doing something along those
| lines. Let's explore deeper...


ACTA "internet enforcement" chapter leaks


World going barmy over copyright enforcement

,----[ Quote ]
| IT IS NOT CLEAR how accurate it is yet but
| someone has posted a copy of what appears
| to be the crucial enforcement section of
| the secret copyright treaty that the
| publishing cartels want the world to
| accept.


ACTA leak shows US Trade Rep lied about "3-strikes"


ACTA Internet Chapter Leaks: Renegotiates WIPO, Sets 3 Strikes as Model

,----[ Quote ]
| Several months after a European Union memo
| discussing the ACTA Internet chapter
| leaked, the actual chapter itself has now
| leaked.  First covered by PC World, the
| new leak fully confirms the earlier
| reports and mirrors the language found in
| the EU memo.  This is the chapter that
| required non-disclosure agreements last
| fall.


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.
