An anonymous reader writes “TechDirt has the latest on the leaked US proposals for the ‘Son of ACTA’ treaty and it looks worse than the original. It’s practically a checklist for how to kill innovation while making lawyers rich. In particular, they call for expanding what’s patentable, blocking people from buying copyrighted goods in other countries and taking them home, expanding liability for ISPs whose users commit acts of infringement, forcing ISPs to identify their users to anyone on demand, and getting rid of third-party patent review while expanding the presumption that they’re valid. The only way it could get any worse would be if it were enacted in law.”
