What is ACTA?
Behind closed doors, the European Union, United States, Japan and other governments are negotiating the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. ACTA will contain new international norms for the enforcement of copyrights, trade mark rights, patents and other exclusive rights.
ACTA workgroup description
The ACTA workgroup of the FFII is run by Ante Wessels. For the time being, the ACTA WG activities overlap with the IPRED2 workgroup (IP Enforcement), but ACTA also affects other domains such as network regulation.
The goal of the workgroup is to raise awareness about ACTA, ensure public scrutiny and broad democratic debate, provide analysis and to monitor the political decision process.
You can contact the workgroup at email@example.com.
