ACTA assinado por Estado Unidos, Austrália, Canadá, Japão, Marrocos, Nova Zelândia, Singapura e Coreia do Sul

A secret trade deal where western powers surrender the constitutional rights of their citizens to Big Content has apparently been signed.

The United States, Australia, Canada, Japan, Morocco, New Zealand, Singapore, and South Korea signed the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement  which is an accord targeting intellectual property piracy. The European Union, Mexico and Switzerland have not signed but indicated they will continue their strong support for the deal.

Mariam Sapiro, deputy United States trade representative said that no government can single-handedly eliminate the problem of global counterfeiting and piracy. Signing this agreement is therefore an act of shared leadership and determination in the international fight against intellectual property theft," she said.
