ACTA Negotiation Date Revealed

Two separate government officials from two different countries have annoymously confirmed that that the next ACTA negotiation will be the week of June 28 to July 2. Previous releases have indicated that the meeting will be held in Geneva, Switzerland. Continuing a long trend of secrecy in the negotiation, no party is willing to go on the record with this information. The press releases following the last negotiating round indicated only that the next round would be in June and in Switzerland.

Public interest advocates have also been informed that the U.S. government is planning to conduct a notice and comment process on the recently released text, but officials refused to go on the record with that information. No date for the comment process was indicated.
