As for what's in these drafts, which are too secret to be seen by the public paying the negotiators' salaries, it's a long and mostly boring list of items intended to stop or slow shipments of counterfeit goods. But the ACTA proposals currently include language that would make copyright infringement on a "commercial scale," even when done with "no direct or indirect motivation of financial gain," into a criminal matter.
The article contains a summary of different (mostly failed) attempts to get at ACTA information:
* Michael Geist filed an Access to Information Act with the Canadian government and dug up a few new interesting documents.
* Public Knowledge today detailed its struggle to get some ACTA documents using a Freedom of Information Act Request. The government turned over 159 pages of information, then indicated it had found another 1,390 pages. But, according to PK attorney Sherwin Siy, "Of these, 1,390 will be withheld under various statutory exemptions to the FOIA. Yes, thats all of them."
* Things haven't been much better in the EU, where a Dutch group [actually, that refers to FFII] has tried to access documents and gotten nowhere.
