Mark Harris comments to New Zealand Government on ACTA

July 30, 2008

I got a friendly email from Mark Harris pointing to the comments on ACTA he recently submitted to the New Zealand government.

Harris’ comment is quite in-depth and brings together many sources. He concludes, succinctly,

Therefore, I submit that the NZ position should be to:

* regularly review the IPR regime in New Zealand to ensure that it encourages actual innovation while respecting the rights of creators
* does not allow measures to continue within New Zealand that encourage infringements of IPR
* respect the existing global bodies (WIPO and WTO) and refer trade and IP matters through them
* not be a party to the development of ACTA
* not recognize ACTA if it reaches fruition

Thanks, Mark!
