So the Trans Pacific Partnership has been discussed before, but apparently, its text is public.
Among other things, I have seen the following claims:
[li]Article 18, Section J “requires ISPs to take down sites without court order.”[/li][li]Article 18.63 internationalizes the most restrictive aspects of American copyright law WITHOUT fair use exceptions.[/li][li]Article 18.68 makes it “illegal to unlock, modify, or tinker with a device you own.”[/li][li]Article 9, ISDS, “gives companies the right to sue governments for not protecting their intellectual property.”[/li][/ul]
So how bad is it, really? I’ve heard dire warnings about it in the past, but now it appears that specifics can actually be discussed.
