August 25 Washington DC ACTA Text
5 Sep 2010

The negotiating text emerging from 10th round ACTA negotiations in
Washington DC (August 16-20, 2010) was not shared with the public
because the United States successfully opposed its release. The US was
the only negotiating party to have taken this position on transparency.

We have obtained a copy of the August 25 consolidated text which
reflects changes made during the DC round. Here [1] is a TRANSCRIBED
version of this document.

While there is maximum consensus in Chapters 3, 4, 5 and 6, numerous
bracketed portions remain in every section of the enforcement chapter,
and issues pertaining to scope are still highly significant. Note also
the addition of a Preamble to the agreement. Parties are reportedly
aiming to conclude text-based negotiations this month during a round of
talks in Tokyo at the end of September.
