I released a statement earlier today opining that the today¹s leak of the
Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) chapter proposed for the Trans
Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement
would give new rights to private companies to challenge limitations and
exceptions to copyrights, patents, and other intellectual property rights in
unaccountable international arbitration forums. This note gives further
background and analysis supporting that statement.


I welcome comments on the blog or on list.
