New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade has the text here I haven't started digging into yet but I woke and and found this posted online and wanted to get it on ATS ASAP!!

Some interesting things so far....




Each Party shall provide procedures... that enable a copyright owner that has made a legally sufficient claim of copyright infringement to obtain expeditiously from an Internet Service Provider information in the provider’s possession identifying the alleged infringer, in cases in which that information is sought for the purpose of protecting or enforcing that copyright.

That's a lot of reading to get through. But I'm sure we are up to it. Let's read every single word and let the world know of this criminal deal.

The problem is that this criminal deal (I have no argument against that it IS) will most likely make criminals out of quite a few of us peons.

Great, another thousands of pages political and legal mumbo jumbo designed to deceive and screw over the everyday middle/low income people while making the wealthy richer. With exceptions to this and passes on that, secret deals and back door ins & outs for 'special' situations, nations or people......it'll take me about an hour just to download all of it.

Read it....that will take a chunk of time. It only took years to write. Did anyone notice every single nation has it's own pdf? This is a GD joke.

I was just going to post this then saw your post. I have to be completely honest I don't fully understand what TTP is and I would like to be educated by some on here as to what the big deal is. I keep hearing about it and how terrible it is going to be for normal people and I don't want to remain ignorant. Can somebody please explain to me what it actually means in layman terms.a reply to: TheAmazingYeti

they are "rules for global trade", but ultimately it gives corporations more rights and "consumers" like you and me are less likely to be able to sue them, but they are more likely to be able to sue us

These bastards aren't even finished - this is probably just the precursor to other "trade deals" and and further corporate takeover

Is the launch of youtube red a coincidence?

Sure a company has a right to protect it's intellectual property, but now anything that is in the public domain could be claimed once again.

It's happened before- computer games deemed abandonware are free to play because the licenses have long expired and it is in the public domain. Now the developers can reclaim their intellectual properties and charge for services despite the fact they never renewed the copyrights.

It's happy birthday all over again.

Use it for toilet paper. Todays 'agreements' are like yesterdays treaties. A bunch of legalese to mire people down with notions of law and order, quickly broken at the first smell of competition or profit.

Its an agreement among the megacorps not to step on each others toes too much while they exploit the peoples and nations of the earth to rape their resources at will.

I understand how the TPP can be seen in a poor light,though we are and have been becoming more and more economically integrated over the centuries thanks to globalization...Trans-national entities are more powerful than nation-states so this trade agreement was inevitable in my opinion.

We can complain all we want about this, that doesn't mean the corrupt politicians are going to decide this time they're actually going to sit down and listen to us.

This will be the final straw that destroys any sovereignty, we have been relegated to serfdom.

If ever there was a time for the common man to stand up worldwide now would be it!

What to do?

That's cause far too many people in this world have that exact attitude.
"Meh, it's not like they'll listen to us so F# it."

It's long past time people start standing up and bitching en masse about the crap our Governments are doing for their benefit at our expense.

The TPP is nothing more than SOPA 2.0 I've been following this story on another site for the last year.


this gives way the Constitution to the Corporations
(your "rights" are EVEN MORE arbitrary [arbitration])

(if Corporations are people, Should't it be able to go to Jail?)

But they should read it, word for word, BEFORE supporting it. That is within their job description.

No one, even lawyers can easily read pages of legal speak. Reading it and actually comprehending what you're reading is pretty much an impossible task for a legislation. That's why it's written the way it is.

I hear that this is a big deal for copyright infringers, although I'm not quite sure why or how exactly. Japan was pretty upset about the copyright details because they thought it would shut down their anime and manga entertainment industry. Just stuff I have been reading on the net... I am a little fuzzy on the details.

I am happy to know I am not the only weirdo who will spend a significant chunk of time reading this!

Thanks for the heads-up!
