+ - EFF Drops ACTA Lawsuit->

Submitted by joewhyit
joewhyit (1311009) writes "The Obama Administration's decision to support Bush-era concealment policies forced the drop of the suit, which sought important documents about the secret anti-counterfeiting enforcement treaty that has broad implications for global privacy and innovation. Very little is known about ACTA, currently under negotiation between the U.S. and more than a dozen other countries. Leaked documents indicate that it could establish far-reaching customs regulations governing searches of personal computers and iPods, could require mandatory filtering of Internet communications for potentially copyright-infringing material, and could adopt "Three Strikes" policies requiring the termination of Internet access after repeat allegations of copyright infringement. Last year, more than 100 public interest organizations around the world called on ACTA country negotiators to make the draft text available for public comment."
