The Constitutional Court of Kenya has blocked the government from implementing that country's Anti-Counterfeiting Act as it applies to generic medicines.  The law has been challenged as unconstitutional on the grounds that it endangers lives by arbitrarily denying access to affordable generic medications.

A good point made by the criticism of the anti-counterfeiting act in Kenya was that it conflated the quality-control aspects of anti-counterfeiting laws with copyright/patent/trademark issues. Most rhetoric I've seen connected with ACTA makes the same mistake, whether deliberately or not.
