+ - Uncle Sam seeks input on the secret ACTA treaty

Submitted by IgnoramusMaximus
IgnoramusMaximus (692000) writes "It would appear that the US Government seeks public "input" (in a sarcastic sense given the procedure, the amount of advertising and the deadline of February 16th) as to the secretly negotiated Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) which was discussed somewhat here a bit on Slashdot.

From the government's mouthpiece:

USTR will maintain a docket on the 2010 Special 301 Review, accessible to the public. The public file will include non-confidential comments, notices of intent to testify, and hearing statements received by USTR from the public, including foreign governments, with respect to the 2010 Special 301 Review. Comments will be placed in the docket and open to public inspection pursuant to 15 CFR 2006.13, except confidential business information exempt from public inspection in accordance with 15 CFR 2006.15. Comments may be viewed on the Web site by entering docket number USTR-2010-0003 in the search field on the home page.

Give them a piece of your mind kids."

The first version always gets thrown away.
