" Today Wikileaks published a new draft
<https://www.wikileaks.org/tpp-ip2/> of the Trans-Pacific Partnership
<https://www.eff.org/issues/tpp> (TPP)'s intellectual property chapter.
This draft text, from May 2014, gives us another look into the current
state of negotiations over this plurilateral trade agreement's copyright
provisions since another draft was leaked last year. And what we're
seeing isn't pretty. The TPP still contains text on DRM
<https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2013/05/hackers-makers-and-tinkerers-heres-how-tpp-would-hurt-you>,
ISP liability
<https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2012/08/tpp-creates-liabilities-isps-and-put-your-rights-risk>,
copyright term lengths
<https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2012/08/all-nations-lose-tpps-expansion-copyright-terms>,
and criminal enforcement measures, and introduces new provisions on
trade secrets that have us worried.
