Submission to the Joint Standing Committee on Treaties regarding Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement

The Australian Government proposes to ratify the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) in 2012 following consideration by the Joint Standing Committee on Treaties. The ADA and ALCC submission offers brief comment on the importance of adopting a cautious approach to negotiating IP provisions, highlights those ACTA provisions that seem to set a dangerous precent for international IP policy making, and notes the absence of public interest considerations in both ACTA and the National Interest Analysis.
