ACTA threatens EU/ Canada Trade Agreement from beyond the grave…

As we posted in the immediate aftermath of the EP ACTA vote last week, this story is not over and done with.

The star.com reports that ACTA has been central to the CETA discussions and its demise may have ramifications for that agreement also:

“While the court referral has attracted the lion share of attention, there is an alternate secret strategy in which Canada plays a key role. According to recently leaked documents that are reported here for the first time, the EU plans to use the Canada – EU Trade Agreement (CETA), which is nearing its final stages of negotiation, as a backdoor mechanism to implement the ACTA provisions.”
