Europe Encourages Moves on ACTA

The International Trademark Association (INTA) has given strong support to the efforts to increase awareness of Europe of the proposed ACTA.

Negotiations on ACTA, allowing to establish a plurilateral IP enforcement system, have been negotiated for a long time now since it was first announced in the fall 2007. The list of participants includes the US, Canada, Japan, New Zealand and the EU. Last month Luc-Pierre Devigne, the chief of the European Commission (EC) Intellectual Property and Public Procurement spoke at the EC meeting in Brussels about the position of Europe in negotiations.


When describing the reasons for EU participation in the agreement, Devigne emphasized that it was the EC's growing reliance on brand exclusivity and innovation which has led to an urgent demand to launch IP protection for exports. The increase of piracy in the European Union is now causing the incentive for organized crime, job losses and safety fears.

The EU, acting through the European Commission, agreed to support the ACTA negotiations, being under hard criticism from such groups as the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the rest of the world for being carried out in secret from the public. The decision for support by EU was based on the fact that it was not easy to devise a multinational IP enforcement system via WCO (the World Customs Organization), WTO (World Trade Organization) and WIPO (the World Intellectual Property Organization).

But the support was calmed to not be unconditional. The condition is that ACTA will keep in line with the existing European law, which means the agreement won’t be able to add any substantive IP provisions and should respect the protection of privacy and data, being able to only imply criminal sanctions on IP abuse of a commercial scale. This also ensures ISPs that ACTA won’t change present provisions on their roles and liabilities, and the travelers – that customs authorities won’t search for their personal hardware.

The participants are planning to finish the negotiations and make a final draft of ACTA this year. INTA highlighted in their statement that the agreement will be designed particularly to fight piracy in a coordinated and harmonized way that is required to combat the counterfeiting networks spreading over multiple countries.

The European Union especially hopes ACTA will become a gold standard in protecting and enforcing intellectual property worldwide.
