This is important; ACTA is is a proposed plurilateral agreement for the purpose of establishing international standards on intellectual property rights enforcement.  The problem is that the negotiations are done behind closed doors and there is no transparency on what they decide. We are based on leaks in order to understand what is going on.

“ACTA would create unduly harsh legal standards that do not reflect contemporary principles of democratic government, free market exchange, or civil liberties. Even though the precise terms of ACTA remain undecided, the negotiants’ preliminary documents reveal many troubling aspects of the proposed agreement” such as removing “legal safeguards that protect Internet Service Providers from liability for the actions of their subscribers” Aaron Shaw

Free Software foundation is against the agreement and they demand for the text to be released; http://www.fsf.org/blogs/community/acta-action-call-on-obama-to-end-the-secrecy-reject-the-treaty.
