The TransPacific Trade Agreement

EFF has been fighting against the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) intellectual property chapter for several years. This agreement poses a great risk to users’ freedoms and access to information on a global scale.

EF has created this infographic to capture the most problematic aspects of TPP, and to help users, advocates and innovators from around the world spread the word about how this agreement will impact them and their societies.  you can download the PDF version below.


  • Since late joiners (eg. Canada) would basically be agreeing to the previous discussions of the parties involved in TPP it would seem to be prudent to have an advocacy program against Canada joining the TPP. Or perhaps advocacy that prevents negotiators from agreements that go beyond existing laws.

    It was my understanding that if Canada did join this agreement would effectively negate the Supreme Court ruling on linking. Can anyone comment on whether that interpretation is correct or incorrect?
