Vilka har påverkat ACTA-avtalet?

Vilka intressen är det egentligen som har fått agera remissinstanser under ACTA-förhandlingarna? Kritiken mot avtalet har hittills handlat mycket om att det finns en enorm obalans mellan stärkt IP-lagstiftning och medborgerliga rättigheter. Att så är fallet tycks plötsligt mycket mer förståeligt när vi ser vilka intressen det är som har agerat remissinstanstanser och således påverkat formuleringarna i avtalet.

Här nedan följer den totala sammanställningen av deltagarna på de två ”stakeholder” meetings som anordnats i samband med ACTA-förhandlingarna. Sammanfattningen ligger överst. Ursäkta svengelskan på sina ställen, en hel översättning av materialet till svenska är på gång.
