Secretive TPP treaty's IP Chapter leaked...

The government + 700 corporate masters, negotiating more of our rights away in secrecy.

Let freedom ring.

Thanks for the links. Some interesting discussions presented.

The general public will not benefit from stronger, longer copyright and patent protectionism, only the corporations. One provision in this treaty would do away with access to cheaper alternative medicines, which in turn would affect potentially millions of people around the world who cannot afford to pay the US pharma industry's artifically-inflated, exorbitant price tags. Another provision would give the corporations the ability to copyright any transmission of data, which would in effect drive up costs and line their own pockets.

The TPP treaty represents a bold attack on human rights, privacy, health, innovation, and the internet.
