New version of the ACTA text
May 27, 2011
By Ante

The EU Commission published a new version of the ACTA (Anti-Counterfeiting 
Trade Agreement) text (pdf).

A Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan announcement mentions an April 15 round 
of negotiations: “The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) was opened 
for signature on May 1, following its adoption by participants in its 
negotiations on April 15.”

Changes in the text

removed: “3 December 2010″ (the date the prior “final” text was made.)

changed: “This Agreement shall remain open for signature by participants in 
its negotiation,17 and by any other WTO Members the participants may agree to 
by consensus, from 31 March 2011 until 31 March 2013.”

To: “This Agreement shall remain open for signature by participants in its 
negotiation,17 and by any other WTO Members the participants may agree to by 
consensus, from 1 May 2011 until 1 May 2013.”

There do not seem to be any other changes.

See the euwiki quick and dirty diff.

(Note the EU Commission website still links to the earlier document. It seems 
the Commission notified the Parliament about the new version, but did not 
update the website.)
