On the Release of ACTA Text

Apr 21, 2010

Today’s release of the ACTA text marks a major stride towards greater transparency, and will help enhance support for this important agreement.  Publication of the negotiating text will show that many of the claims made by ACTA critics and anti-IP activists to stop this agreement were false.  ACTA promises to improve cooperation and enhance the collective efforts of nearly forty countries against the growing scourge of counterfeiting and piracy—in both the online and physical environments—that is killing jobs, stunting our economic recovery, and harming consumers.  As such, the Chamber will continue pressing for an ambitious and comprehensive ACTA, consistent with U.S. law, that establishes the gold standard for intellectual property protection and enforcement, and urges its completion this year.
