[LUG] TPP IP Chapter


TPP IP Chapter Leaked, Confirming It's Worse Than ACTA

The document confirms fears that the negotiating parties are prepared to
expand the reach of intellectual property rights, and shrink consumer
rights and safeguards.

Compared to existing multilateral agreements, the TPP IPR chapter
proposes the granting of more patents, the creation of intellectual
property rights on data, the extension of the terms of protection for
patents and copyrights, expansions of right holder privileges, and
increases in the penalties for infringement. The TPP text shrinks the
space for exceptions in all types of intellectual property rights.
Negotiated in secret, the proposed text is bad for access to knowledge,
bad for access to medicine, and profoundly bad for innovation.
