#EU Customs Action Plan to combat #IPR infringements for the years 2009 to 2012 (2009/C 71/01)

I’m working my way through proposed EU legislations to find all of those that concern changes to #EU laws and opinions regarding the protection of IPR Intellectual Property Rights. I am mainly concerned with those that touch on the internet.

There is ACTA and there is IPRED2

There are other documents as well, including the COUNCIL RESOLUTION of 16 March 2009 on the EU Customs Action Plan to combat IPR infringements for the years 2009 to 2012 (2009/C 71/01):


The relevent text concerning ACTA is:

4. International cooperation
4.1. Support ACTA (Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement) negotiations:
