|Description||Group against the ACTA|
Stub from Wikipedia entry on ACTA.
The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) is a proposed plurilateral trade agreement for establishing international standards on intellectual-property-rights enforcement throughout the participating countries. Its proponents describe it as a response "to the increase in global trade of counterfeit goods and pirated copyright protected works." The scope of ACTA is broad, including counterfeit goods, generic medicines, as well as "piracy over the Internet".
The FSF's campaign against ACTA is at http://www.fsf.org/campaigns/acta.
