In July 2010 representatives of the EU and governments of the US and
many other countries met in Switzerland for the ninth round of negotiations
for the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA). While
the purpose of the ACTA is to establish a voluntary international legal
framework (outside the WTO) to promote the enforcement of intellectual
property rights (IPR), many developing countries like India and China
strongly opposed proposed policies that would strengthen IPR protection.
