>IDG News saw the draft text of the Internet section last week, but the
>actual document has now leaked (PDF). Titled "Enforcement procedures in the
>digital environment," the brief document quickly hits the high points:
>Internet filtering (not allowed to be a requirement), "three strikes"
>policies (encouraged but not mandatory), takedown procedures (required),
>and ISP safe harbors (also required).
>If the bill sounds much like existing American law, it should; the US
>delegation drafted the Internet section of ACTA, and the entire document is
>being negotiated as an executive agreement, meaning that it can be adopted
>without Congressional consent but may not alter US law. Thus,
>unsurprisingly, the leaked document takes the DMCA worldwide.
