ACTA Text Leaks; US Caves On ISPs, Seeks Super-DMCA

An anonymous reader writes “Given the history of ACTA leaks, to no one’s surprise, the latest
version of the draft agreement
(PDF) was leaked last night on KEI’s
website. The new version — which reflects changes made during an intense week of negotiations
last month in Washington — shows a draft agreement that is much closer
to becoming reality. Perhaps the most
important story of the latest draft is how the
countries are close to agreement on the Internet enforcement
chapter
. In
the face of opposition, the US has dropped its demands on secondary
liability for ISPs but is still holding out hope of establishing a
super-DMCA with digital lock
rules that go beyond the WIPO Internet treaties and were even rejected
by US courts.”
