TPP Treaty: Intellectual Property Rights Chapter - 5 October 2015
------------------------------------------------------------

Today, 9 October, 2015 WikiLeaks releases the final negotiated text for the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) Intellectual Property Rights Chapter. The TPP encompasses 12 nations representing more than 40 per cent of global GDP. Despite a final agreement, the text is still being withheld from the public, notably until after the Canadian election on October 19.

The document is dated four days ago, October 5th, or last Monday, the same day it was announced in Atlanta, Georgia that the 12 member states to the treaty had reached an accord after five and a half years of negotiations.

The IP Chapter of the TPP has perhaps been the most controversial chapter due to its wide-ranging effects on internet services, medicines, publishers, civil liberties and biological patents. “If TPP is ratified, people in the Pacific-Rim countries would have to live by the rules in this leaked text,” said Peter Maybarduk, Public Citizen’s Global Access to Medicines Program Director. “The new monopoly rights for big pharmaceutical firms would compromise access to medicines in TPP countries. The TPP would cost lives.”

The Final Leaked TPP Text is All That We Feared (https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2015/10/fi...-we-feared)

Today's release (https://wikileaks.org/tpp-ip3/) by Wikileaks of what is believed to be the current and essentially final version of the intellectual property (https://www.eff.org/issues/intellectual-...y/the-term) (IP) chapter of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (https://www.eff.org/issues/tpp) (TPP) confirms our worst fears about the agreement, and dashes the few hopes that we held out that its most onerous provisions wouldn't survive to the end of the negotiations.

Since we now have the agreed text, we'll be including some paragraph references that you can cross-reference for yourself—but be aware that some of them contain placeholders like “x” that may change in the cleaned-up text. Also, our analysis here is limited to the copyright and Internet-related provisions of the chapter, but analyses of the impacts of other parts of the chapter have been published by Wikileaks (https://wikileaks.org/tpp-ip3/) and others (http://www.citizen.org/pressroom/pressro...fm?ID=5662) .

Wikileaks release of TPP deal text stokes 'freedom of expression' fears (http://www.theguardian.com/business/2015...ts-chapter)

One chapter appears to give the signatory countries (referred to as “parties”) greater power to stop embarrassing information going public. The treaty would give signatories the ability to curtail legal proceedings if the theft of information is “detrimental to a party’s economic interests, international relations, or national defense or national security” – in other words, presumably, if a trial would cause the information to spread.

About me: The Philosophy of BREAKING ALL THE
RULES "Breaking All The Rules" is a state of mind. In order to understand its meaning, the correct essence of human nature must be known and admitted. If you fantasize that Voltaire's Candide is attainable, you are doomed to a plight of continuous confusion. Mankind is flawed at best, favors an immoral inclination and affirms a corrupt demeanor by his deeds. Perfection is reserved for the deity, while righteousness is the province of saints. The predominance of the human race is disposed towards self-centered expediency, abandoning any norm of moral virtue. Confirmed by the annals of history, the incontestable record of inhumanity and depravity is the actual legacy of social behavior. Society is an abstract, while government is a tyrant. The State exists to survive and control. It operates on designs of dominance and its edicts are enforced by coercion. Arbitrary standards are the norm, while a pretense of lawful order is maintained. Disguised as public service, the
preferable results for the favored and submissive, are the artificial rewards for compliance. Independent thinking is dangerous, dissent becomes the ultimate transgression and disobedience to the dictates of the State are the supreme sin. The fraud of democracy conceals the curse of equalitarianism. Altruism is put forth as noble, while fairness is used as an excuse to demand conformity. Intrinsic, inherent and basic human rights are violated as the deceit of the "common good" is adopted to insure the regimentation of individuals. All the time, elites foster the rules of men, as they transgress the laws given to man, by God. Social Darwinism promotes the insanity of progress through the practice of collectivism. Secular relativism is the faith that makes possible the commands of totalitarian despots. The mob demands a more inclusive "free lunch" which invites further pretexts from charlatan politicians to consolidate their control. Resisting depraved authority is the purpose
behind the philosophy of Breaking All The Rules. Liberty entails responsibility. Because man is condemned to be free, society is damned to an eternal struggle against the partisans of enslavement. Our duty is not to any State, but resides within the advocacy and defense of principles for sensible moral human conduct. Accountability is essential. Social justice is a core ingredient of traditional values. Since each person is endowed with universal dignity, it behooves citizens to respect and protect, not only the less fortunate; but also ourselves. Fundamental principles overcome secular relativism. Our Existential approach to understanding offers hope. Albert Camus was right - A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world and integrity has no need of rules. When you learn to live by the former the the later permits you to understand the reason why - BREAKING ALL THE RULES - is constitutive and necessary.
