WikiLeaks shines rare light onto US trade negotiations

In its latest document dump, WikiLeaks unearthed what it says is a leaked chapter from secretive trade negotiations under way between the U.S., Japan, and a number of Pacific rim nations. The documents suggest the proposed framework will have far reaching consequences and undermine individual rights worldwide.
The anti-privacy organization released what it says is the August version of a section of the negotiating framework concerning intellectual property rights, part of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a proposed free trade agreement between the U.S. and ten nations.
The nations covered by the TPP total almost 40 percent of the world’s GDP, over 11 percent of its population and about a quarter of its global trade. The agreement is intended to lower trade barriers between the countries and help negotiate a framework on issues including intellectual property rights.
