What is ACTA?  

ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement.  A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, Japan, Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada.

Why should you care about ACTA?

Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting "Internet distribution and information technology."

What is the goal of ACTA?

Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries' law enforcement agencies.
