My wife asked me what the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement is. The link above is to a good explanation of what it is, provided by IP Justice. IP Justice describe themselves as IP Justice is an international civil liberties organization that promotes balanced intellectual property law. The organization’s focus is on international treaties, directives, and other trade agreements that address intellectual property rights or impact freedom of expression guarantees. IP Justice is an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in San Fransisco.
