Trade Facts: Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA)
United States. Office of the U.S. Trade Representative
Schwab, Susan
This fact sheet from the Office of the United States Trade Representative details how the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) negotiations will improve IPR protection. "The ACTA effort aims to provide a framework for countries committed to strong IPR protection to more effectively combat the challenges of IPR infringement today, particularly in the context of piracy and counterfeiting. We envision that: (1) The ACTA will be a leadership agreement, setting a positive example for nations that aspire to strengthen IPR enforcement. (2) Participation will grow over time, reflecting the growing international consensus on the need for strong IPR enforcement. Benefits of ACTA: (3) Enhancing international IPR enforcement by partnering with countries that recognize the critical importance of such enforcement. (4) Strengthening the international fight against pirates and counterfeiters who steal from businesses and workers, discourage innovation and creativity, threaten health and safety, provide an easy source of revenue for organized crime, and cause loss of tax revenue. (5) Building on the successes of the Strategy Targeting Organized Piracy (STOP) initiative, a government-wide effort started in October 2004 to confront piracy and counterfeiting."
