Summary:
The ACTA treaty is currently negotiated between US, Europe, Japan and other developed nations. According to leaked information, the treaty would apply the same harsh sanctions for all IP infringements, whether they are patents or plant variety rights. ACTA might be a fuel for trolls, since it could lower down the threshold level for obtaining injunctions and preventive freezing bank accounts of the suspected infringer.
