- Unknow: conclusion of the agreement
CETA (Canada-EU Trade Agreement) is a wide trade agreement negotiated since 2009 by Canada and the European Union. Currently being finalised, it could be signed before the end of 2012.
Only a few days after the rejection by the European Parliament of ACTA, leaks of the CETA's chapter dedicated to the protection of intellectual property were published, which echoes word for word the worst parts of ACTA, as criminal sanctions and repressive copyright clauses. Also, most analysts are seeing in CETA a rewriting of OMPI or APIC (OMC) treaties.
Once again, this time through CETA, the EU Commission is trying to bypass the democratic process in order to impose repressive measures, already rejected by citizens and the European Parliament. Like ACTA, CETA is a major threat to freedom of expression online and creates legal uncertainty for Internet actors.
