Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA)

February 15, 2011: PIJIP Project Assists Law Professors and Public Interest Groups in Submissions to USTR on IP and Trade Policy

The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) is a proposed plurilateral agreement to raise international standards for international intellectual property law enforcement. ACTA would establish a new international legal framework with its own governing body. After a series of leaks of text in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010, the negotiating parties published the official version of the current draft on 20 April 2010. Since then, there have been no public on-the-record consultations on ACTA by the U.S. Two additional texts have leaked, showing major revisions of the agreement.
