Chamber Applauds ACTA Announcement
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce commends USTR and the other negotiating partners for this major step forward, and the progress they are making to complete a comprehensive ACTA this year. We particularly laud their decision to release the draft text. This announcement should address many of the erroneous claims of anti-ACTA critics and get us refocused on the substantive components of this important agreement. A robust ACTA will help address the growing problems of counterfeiting and piracy, protect consumers, and preserve American jobs. We look forward to the release of the text and the opportunity to engage with USTR and other stakeholders on the substance of this agreement, which is supported by Congress and the President.
