Canadian officials confirmed that they favour a more transparent approach to ACTA. They indicated that there are ongoing discussions among negotiating partners about how to address transparency concerns. During the meeting, officials released a document that will apparently be made available by all ACTA negotiating partners. The document – which the USTR has now posted – provides a similar summary as was provided during the meeting. Officials also acknowledged that there is still disagreement on the transparency issue, with some countries favouring release of the draft text sooner rather than later, while others indicating that they typically keep everything secret until completion. One possibility noted by Canadian officials was the prospect of releasing the draft with all suggested changes without attribution to the particular delegation.
