The European Commission has submitted a proposal for a Council decision on the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), which is available for download here.

“ACTA includes state-of-the-art provisions on the enforcement of IPR, including provisions on civil, criminal, border and digital environment enforcement measures, robust cooperation mechanisms among ACTA Parties to assist in their enforcement efforts, and the establishment of best practices for effective IPR enforcement.”

This new international agreement, the text of which is appended to the proposal, will now be signed and concluded by both the EU and all Member States.
