Summary:
Public interest groups and scholars are piecing together the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement through leaks and sources. [...] It's becoming clear that the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement is not, as backers have suggested, just a minor tuneup to worldwide intellectual property law [...]. [...] none of the countries involved have seen fit to release much in the way of useful information on the process—To the public, anyway. Based on sources and leaked documents, Knowledge Ecology International now asserts that ACTA drafts are in fact "formally available to cleared corporate lobbyists and informally distributed to corporate lawyers and lobbyists in Europe, Japan, and the US."
