Multi-lateral treaties: ACTA, TTIP, TTP

The 2011 treaty ACTA - for Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement - was only the first of a number of attempts to negotiate multi-lateral treaties that would bind signatory nations to a new international legal framework for the enforcement of intellectual property rights. Other examples include the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP, also known as TAFTA, for Transatlantic Free Trade Area), a proposed EU-US treaty that had its third round of negotiations in December 2013, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a proposed trade agreement under negotiation by Australia, New Zealand, the US, and a group of Asian and South American nations.
