Stop the Secrecy

What is the TPP hiding?

Thu, 09/06/2012 - 00:00 -- OpenMedia

The negotiating parties behind the Trans-Pacific Partnership are continuing to restrict access and input to the TPP text, effectively disregarding the voices of citizens worldwide in letting themselves be heard.

We've created an online tool at OpenTheTPP.net to get your messages in front of TPP negotiators. Together, let's push open the doors of the TPP.

Open The TPP

Thu, 09/06/2012 - 00:00 -- OpenMedia

Closed-door Trans-Pacific Partnership meetings are resuming this week. Officials behind the TPP Internet trap will continue to develop a plan to impose new restrictions; including consumer fines and website blocking. We’ve created an easy-to-use tool that will get your voice to TPP officials. 

Citizens of the Internet

The pro-Internet community is being faced with restrictive bills and pieces of legislation that want to criminalize, filter and radically change our Internet as we know it. As the Trans-Pacific Partnership resumes negotiations this week, help in speaking out against these invasive implications by adding your voice to our http://StopTheTrap.net campaign and tell our government leaders that we are standing together for an open Internet.

EFF: The TPP further restricts stakeholder participation

Thu, 08/30/2012 - 00:00 -- OpenMedia

The next round of Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations will be taking place in just a week's time, running from September 6-15 in Leesburg, Virginia. As part of this round of negotiations, there has been an allocated time for "Stakeholder Presentations". These presentations are far from what's needed to allow citizen voices to be heard, and now it looks like we're going to be restricted even further.

Stay tuned as we continue working on a way to get all 100,000+ signees of the StopTheTrap.net petition heard.

EFF: The TPP as the son of ACTA

Mon, 08/27/2012 - 00:00 -- OpenMedia

Recently we shared an infographic that helped to show the details of the TPP's Internet trap. Now, we're providing a bit more explanation and context as to what dangers the TPP poses to our Internet use. 

The Trans-Pacific Partnership retains many of the same copyright restrictions and that were within ACTA, another treaty that sought to overwrite the Internet use of global citizens. Although the two treaties have many similarities, the most notable difference is ACTA's defeat in the face of public pressure. 

EFF: Japan's pro-Internet community rallies against TPP

Sun, 08/26/2012 - 00:00 -- OpenMedia

Japan has yet to formally join the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations, but that isn't stopping its citizens from speaking out against restrictive copyright measures found within the TPP text. There are weekly anti-TPP rallies in front of government buildings and a large public gathering is being organized for early next month.

Join the over 100,000 global voices who have spoken out against the TPP at http://StopTheTrap.net/ and learn more about the TPP copyright provisions.

Scaling up together to meet the threats to the open Internet

Thu, 08/23/2012 - 13:09 -- OpenMedia

From the beginning the Internet has always been about us; those who use the Internet to connect with one another, to create, to express ourselves, and to make our lives just a little bit easier. We must stand up to lobbyists who act to restrict Internet freedom in their drive to prop up outdated governance and business models. To that end we’re happy to announce the launch of our mobile-adaptive OpenMedia International beta website.
