Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement
The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, which is designed to counteract copyright piracy and trademark counterfeiting, and to strengthen copyright and trademark protection enforcement, was entered into October 1, 2011, by United States, Australia, Canada, Korea, Japan, New Zealand, Morocco and Singapore, with the EU, Mexico and Switzerland likely to follow.
