While there’s so much confusion regarding ACTA going on at the political scene of Europe, you would probably be glad to know that there is some party which is willing to eliminate that confusion, or at least a part of it.


As you remember from recent articles, the Committee on Internal Market and Consumer Protection (IMCO) has been having problems with trying to find out what exactly Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) is. At the same time, one more committee in the European Union Commission – European Parliament’s Trade Committee (INTA) expressed the assumption that ACTA just didn’t exist. So it seems like the abovesaid Agreement is the most confusing thing for Europeans. That was probably the reason why European Digital Rights (EDRI) came to try and help them (and some of us) fill a gap where confusion lives.

EDRI have published a FAQ on ACTA. It specifically targets the chapter concerning Internet, which has been the cause of the most controversy within the years from the time ACTA leaked online. The FAQ succeeds at targeting some known arguments promoted by the supporters that have wound up being simply untrue. It’s also a perfect way to get informed for those less familiar with the Agreement and wanting to know more about it, particularly for European citizens.

The most popular questions and answers concern the subject matter of ACTA, which is not only about counterfeiting, but also covers much greater list of issues, such as worldwide Internet regulation, generic medicines world trade and mandated punishments for non-commercial copyright infringement. Another topic of current interest is so called “tree-strikes policy” allowing disconnection approach for accused repeat copyright infringers and its abandoning by the European Commission. This has been discussed a lot recently because many people understand that putting liability on Internet Service Providers will lead to the restrictions anyway. And that in its turn would contradict to the spirit and letter of EU telecoms package that has been adopted recently.

The Commission also announced that in their opinion ACTA is close to tackling illegal activity of a large scale. There is no effort (and is it clear what effort is possible) for liability of ISPs to be restricted to those activities. So the Commission’s response is just misleading unless it expresses its intention to reject any ACTA text on their liability.

kingtiger01 avatarThis is a bit confusing to be honest... i always Assumed ACTA was a Group similar to are MPAA/RIAA. But this article makes it sound to be like a set of regulations, enforced by a set of governments.

Either way, it needs to vanish, along with there aspirations of causing every file-sharer trouble.
