Subject: Re: [IP] Obama Admin rules texts of new IPR agreement are state secretsEU


We are hoping the Obama White House focuses more on the issue of ACTA
transparency, and changes course.  Clearly it is offensive to claim the
proposals for an important IPR enforcement treaty should be treated as
national security secrets (as is now being done).  However, to
understand how truly absurd this is, consider than the USTR has hundreds
and hundreds of "cleared advisors" who have access to the documents.
Below is a list only the 116 of the corporate lawyers, lobbyists and PR
people, from 4 of the 27 USTR advisory committees cleared to see the
ACTA documents.  I know a lot of people on this list, and it is
difficult to imagine how the White House can justify giving them access,
and not giving everyone access.  Jamie


Who are the cleared advisors that have access to secret ACTA documents?
