ACTA IS A THREAT TO FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS & ACCESS TO KNOWLEDGE

http://a.lqdn.fr/img/acta.gif

- impose harsh and unfair penalties on users and consumers ;
- harm access to medicines and to essential knowledge in poor countries ;
- inhibit innovation ;
- establish new anti-democratic policy-making that bypass parliaments.

Let's stop ACTA !
