ACTA Guide, Part Two: The Documents (Official and Leaked)

Tuesday January 26, 2010


Negotiations in the 7th round of the ACTA talks open this morning in Mexico with civil
enforcement issues on the agenda. Yesterday I posted on the developments to-date, including a
chronology of talks, issues, and leaks that have led to this week's round of discussions. Part Two
of the ACTA Guide provides links to the underlying documentation. Governments have been very
tight lipped about the talks. Initially, only a brief summary following the conclusion of each round
of the talks was provided. More recently, the agenda of each meeting is disclosed and a summary
document (largely confirming Internet leaks) has been provided. Links to each of these documents
is posted below.

 The official agenda for the 7th round of negotiations in Guadalajara, Mexico
 Statement on 6th round of negotiations in Seoul, Korea
 Statement on 5th round of negotiations in Rabat, Morocco
 Statement on 4th round of negotiations in Paris, France
 Statement on 3rd round of negotiations in Tokyo, Japan
 Statement on 2nd round of negotiations in Washington, DC
 Statement on 1st round of negotiations in Geneva, Switzerland
 The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement - Summary of Key Elements Under Discussion

Of far greater importance are the leaked documents. These have confirmed how the Anti-
Counterfeiting Trade Agreement is designed to extend far beyond counterfeiting and how it would
reshape domestic law in many countries, including Canada. Links to all the leaks are posted
below. Note that many are dated and therefore reflect initial thinking but may have changed over
the course of recent discussions.
