The main problem with this treaty is that all the negotiations were done secretly, keeping
the public and civil organizations out of the table. All the information until 2010 relied
on leaks that reveal intentional secrecy to misled the public.

STUDYTHE ANTI-COUNTERFEITING TRADE AGREEMENT ( ACTA):AN ASSESSMENT
Abstract
  The ACTA was motivated by a desire to establish equivalent provisions in internationaltrade agreements containing rules on anti-counterfeiting. This is important at a timewhen free trade agreements are being negotiated by different parties. For the EuropeanUnion it is also of importance to protect EU intellectual property rights (IPR) as future EUcompetitiveness depends on its ability to move into higher value added activities such asthose for which IPRs are important. At the same time international agreements on IPRswill only be sustainable when they have the support of all parties. Within the EU theACTA has also been the source of some concerns regarding the non-transparent way itwas negotiated and whether it meets to aims agreed by the European Parliament andCommission that it would be compatible with the existing
acquis communautaire
and theWorld Trade Organisation’s Trade Related intellectual Property rights (TRIPs) Agreement.
