"On the heels of the leak of various country positions on ACTA
transparency, today an even bigger leak has hit the Internet. A new
European Union document prepared several weeks ago canvasses the
Internet and Civil Enforcement chapters, disclosing in complete
detail the proposals from the U.S., the counter-proposals from the
EU, Japan, and other ACTA participants. The 44-page document also
highlights specific concerns of individual countries on a wide
range of issues including ISP liability, anti-circumvention rules,
and the scope of the treaty. This is probably the most significant
leak to-date since it goes even beyond the transparency debate by
including specific country positions and proposals.
"The document highlights significant disagreement on a range of
issues. For example, on the issue of anti-circumvention legislation
and access controls, the U.S. wants it included per the DCMA, but
many other countries, including the EU, Japan, and New Zealand do
not, noting that the WIPO Internet treaties do not require it."
