"The threats to public health policies from the leaked investment chapter compound those from the leaked intellectual property chapter ... The text would dramatically expand the number of firms that could use Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) to attack public interest policies ... The leaked investment text would apply the flawed ISDS enforcement mechanism to the Trans-Pacific Partnership's harmful patent rules - and, in a dangerous new twist, possibly to standards imported from World Trade Organization patent rules as well."
