New Zealand Anti Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) - Heard Of It?

Does anyone care about the New Zealand Anti Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) -- probably not because the New Zealand Government doesn't seem to want anyone to know what's going on despite it being discussed on National Radio

Four posts to get you thinking and make you angry:

1:Wiki leaks - where ACTA was first leaked
Why did it take a leak for us, the New Zealand public to hear about it?
To be fair a mate of mine was fuming about this (and everyone's disinterest) at least 12 months ago ... but no-one cared then, maybe they will now?

2: Mark Harris' request for ACTA papers under official information act
Proof that the New Zealand government is actively hiding this away from us?

3 and 4: Great summary posts from Brenda and Mauricio

Thanks for the mention. Who was your mate, BTW, and how come he was so prescient?
