Where to Find Comments on ACTA
The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement chugs along, with comments by rights holders that urge imposition of liability on ISPs for failing to block pirated material, among others. Another provision sought by the RIAA would hold the principle of "making available" equaling infringement the legal standard. Not all courts agree with that one. Another suggested provision would conflict with European interpretation of privacy law, that being IP addresses are personal information not subject to collection. That would change if the content providers get their way. It's hard to identify an online pirate if they can keep their IP addresses private.
Comments from various stakeholders are available here from the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative. [MG]
