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.

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.
