No UK MP Seen ACTA Text

The UK Intellectual Property Office confirmed that there’s no democratic institution in the country which has already seen the text of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement.

As the negotiations on a very secretive nature of the ACTA draft continue, more news surfaced with the UK’s IPO confirming that no country’s MP has yet seen the draft of the treaty, nor any member the UK’s Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee did. It means that the story is repeating those from the other countries where the Agreement is being discussed – no democratic institution in the United Kingdom has so far seen a copy of the ACTA text. The country’s Open Rights Group complaints that there’s been no democratic scrutiny of the ACTA draft, and even the Parliament has been excluded from the debates. The only conclusion we can make on the document we’ve never seen is that it lacks legitimacy before it’s even agreed.

What the majority of observers are worried about is that the Agreement may have some provisions that would surpass both local and international legislation. The most concern that critics have is about the likelihood that the fines for copyright violation would surpass the actual damages suffered. Besides, the draft of ACTA suggests implementing an “IP border police,” which goes beyond the international law, providing that the seizure of goods must require prima facie evidence, and the time of such seizure is limited to ten days. Meanwhile, ACTA draft doesn’t contain any of those safeguards.

All these concerns are coupled with the recent Written Declaration 12, issued by the EU Parliament, criticizing the fact that the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement has limitations upon judicial due process. Besides, the European Parliament believes it weakens the citizens’ basic rights like freedom of expression or the right to privacy.

All in all, the UK’s ORG claims that all of those issues affecting the public are very seriously criticized, so the country can’t let unelected Government officials decide on them. In any democratic country the Parliament should be able to discuss the draft, scrutinize it and hand out the decisions which have an effect on its citizens. So the UK MPs should see and discuss the ACTA draft.

The eleventh and probably final round of the negotiations on the Agreement has already started in Tokyo. We’ll hope the negotiators will provide the public with a chance to express its opinion before it is too late.

DAPORTUGEEZER avatarwhy am i not surprised by this....its the same way it was passed through uk parliment..this was only done because eu members and usa were moaning and as per usual along comes the uk with there noses up somebodys backside..but then again why would any mp look at the ACTA they are to busy spend my money on extensions to their propertys and buying bird pools for their gardens....waste of money and certainly a waste of time....the most hilarious is ip border police going beyond international law....scare tactics i say....but this has to be one of the most idiotic ways of dealing with this.....it will cost tax payers like me a lot of money...not that im worried as if i do have any copies of anything i also have the original too...
i do agree however that mps should sit down and discuss this as its bad enough the country is in debt and costs are the highest in the world...to be able to download a few movies and songs is not doing any harm...but understand that if you cant download music or cant afford to purchase the music the next thing is to steal the music......so up goes crime.......goverments are doing more harm than good.......revolution i say...lol
