EFF has been on the ground in Lima, Peru for the 17th round of Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations. The TPP is a secretive, multinational trade agreement, and one chapter carries overreaching copyright enforcement provisions that pose a huge threat to the Internet and users' access to devices and digital content.

This is a video from a protest outside the J.W. Marriott where TPP talks are taking place. Katitza Rodriguez, EFF's International Rights Director, talks about how U.S. negotiators of the TPP aim to create a global norm of copyright enforcement by mirroring terms of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act in this treaty. This impacts the U.S. and other countries' ability to maintain or enact their own balanced innovation policies. Besides a few leaks of previous drafts, the text of the agreement is completely secret and civil society continues to be shut out of the process.
