What Is TPP? It’s the Biggest Global Threat to the Internet Since ACTA

What Is TPP? It’s the Biggest Global Threat to the Internet Since ACTA 2TPPt
Katitza Rodriguez and Maira Sutton
EFF

The United States and ten [color:4cb0=blue !important][color:4cb0=blue !important]governments from around the Pacific are meeting yet again to hash out the secret Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement (TPP) on May 15-24 in Lima, Peru. The TPP is one of the worst global threats to the Internet since ACTA . Since the negotiations have been secretive from the beginning, we mainly know what’s in the current version of this [color:4cb0=blue !important][color:4cb0=blue !important]trade agreement because of a leaked draft [PDF] from February 2011. Based upon that text, some other leaked notes , and the undemocratic nature of the entire process, we have every reason to be alarmed about the copyright enforcement [color:4cb0=blue !important][color:4cb0=blue !important]provisions contained in this multinational trade deal.

The TPP is likely to export some of the worst features of U.S. copyright law to Pacific Rim countries : a broad ban on breaking digital locks on devices and creative works (even for legal purposes), a minimum copyright term of the lifetime of the creator plus seventy years
(the current international norm is the lifetime plus fifty years),
privatization of enforcement for copyright infringement, ruinous
statutory damages with no proof of actual harm, and government seizures
of [color:4cb0=blue !important][color:4cb0=blue !important]computers and equipment involved in alleged infringement. Moreover, the TPP is worst than U.S. copyright
rules: it does not export the many balances and exceptions that favor
the public interest and act as safety valves in limiting rightsholders’ [color:4cb0=blue !important][color:4cb0=blue !important]protection . Adding insult to injury, the TPP’s temporary copies provision will likely create chilling effects on how people and [color:4cb0=blue !important][color:4cb0=blue !important]companies behave online and their basic ability to use and create on the Web.
The stated goal of the TPP is to unite the Pacific Rim countries by
harmonizing tariffs and trade rules between them, but in reality, it’s
much more than that. The “intellectual property”
chapter in this massive trade agreement will likely force changes to
copyright and patent rules in each of the signatory countries. Accepting
these new rules will not just re-write national laws, but will also
restrict the possibility for countries to introduce more balanced
copyright laws in the future. This strategy may end up harming other
countries’ more proportionate laws such as Chile,
where a judicial order is required for ISPs to be held liable for
copyright infringement and take down content. Such systems better
protect users and intermediaries from disproportionate or
censorship-driven takedowns. If the final TPP text forces countries to
adopt a privatize notice and takedown regime, this could imply the end
of the Chilean system. It would also undermine canada’s notice-notice
regime.

The content [color:4cb0=blue !important][color:4cb0=blue !important]industry can and will continue
to buy and lie to get their way to get laws that protects their
interests, and what they want more than anything is for us to remain
passively ignorant. They did it with SOPA, ACTA, and now it’s TPP
[ESP]. It’s going to be a challenge to defeat these policies, but we
can do it. The TPP is slated for conclusion this October, but our goal
is to get the worst of these copyright provisions out of it. The way to
fight back is to show that we will not put up with this: to demand an
open transparent process that allows everyone, including [color:4cb0=blue !important][color:4cb0=blue !important]experts
from civil society members, to analyze, question, and probe any
initiatives to regulate the Internet. The secrecy must be stopped once
and for all.
