TPP Update
« on: December 19, 2012, 08:15:20 PM »
As Digital Rights Advocates Mobilize Around the TPP Negotiations, Process Becomes Even Less Transparent
The 15th round of Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement negotiations in New Zealand has concluded, locking out civil society participation in an unprecedented way. Based upon what we have seen from a leaked version of the agreement, the TPP contains language that could effectively pressure ISPs to become Internet cops and criminalize the distribution of DRM-circumvention tools even for fair uses. It would also impede parallel importation of copyrighted goods, among other things. After participating in previous rounds, we could not have imagined that the process could become any less transparent. Amazingly, it did.

  Well I don't know, I rather think the Christmas presents I have hidden are pretty good.   ;)
