Jun 17-18: Public Interest Analysis of the International Intellectual Property Enforcement Agenda

Over 80 academics and public interest advocates from 5 continents gathered at American University Washington College of Law on June 17 and 18 of 2010. They deliberated over concerns with the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), a controversial intellectual property treaty being negotiated in secret, and produced an Urgent Communique, which was subsequently signed by over 700 European Parliamentarians, civil society organizations, academics, practitioners and individuals.
