ACTA: draft analysis competence issues
Behind closed doors the EU, US and Japan negotiate an Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA). According to the European Commission's website, a "path breaking" agreement is foreseen. For this reason the Commission likes to work outside the normal formal structures.
An ACTA discussion paper was leaked. On this page we will discuss whether the agreement, as foreseen in the leaked discussion paper, falls within the the Community's competence.
