ctrp331 Explaining ACTA

The negotiations are secret as is the text of the agreement, but what is ACTA then? What will adopting this international treaty on counterfeit and piracy effect the everyday activities we take part in offline and online.

My guest, Mike Masnick of techdirt.com, has been following and writing on the topic of ACTA  for some time. He joins me on the program to help give an introduction to what it is, what and who it effects, and how it is being developed.

Flattr this!

    Hi Mark,

    The interview with Simon Phipps on Floss Weekly 113 (http://twit.tv/floss113) has a good “explanation” of ACTA too (as far as details are known).

    HTH, Erik.

    love to hear more on ACTA…are searches of iPods & laptops really going to happen (I know the US has happened on a few occasions).

    Is there anything in ACTA against encryption/counter measures – ie. locking down your harddrive – can they make you reveal passwords etc?
