ATRIP Intellectual Property series
Edited by Jan Rosén
Chapter 10: ACTA, internet service providers and the acquis communautaire
The negotiations for the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) started unofficially on the basis of Japanese and US initiatives in 2006. Canada, the EU and Switzerland joined later. Official negotiations started in June 2008, which also involved Australia, Mexico, Morocco, New Zealand, the Republic of Korea and Singapore. In essence, these are the countries which account for the vast majority of the world’s intellectual property rights. ‘Agreement in principle’ was reached in October 2010; the text was finalized on 15 April 2011 and was opened for signature on 1 May 2011.
