Japan Ratifies ACTA

09 Sep 2012

NEW YORK, NY - The International Trademark Association (INTA) applauded in a press release Japan for ratifying the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), a multilateral trade agreement aimed at improving intellectual property enforcement against counterfeiting and piracy internationally.

“By ratifying ACTA, Japan has shown its leadership in the global fight against counterfeiting and piracy,” said Alan C. Drewsen, Executive Director of INTA. “Other countries must follow Japan, and send a clear message to counterfeiters and pirates that their crimes will not be tolerated.”

Australia, Canada, South Korea, Mexico, Morocco, New Zealand, Singapore and the United States have all signed the agreement and are in the process of ratifying the trade agreement. INTA urges the signatories to work within their governments to pass the trade agreement and provide businesses, consumers and innovators protection from the harms of counterfeiting and piracy .
