There’s been bags of speculation around the secretive Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) negotiations in recent months, but now the ‘internet enforcement’ section of the draft agreement has leaked. As most commentators have pointed out, it pretty much matches existing US DMCA laws. So it would bring the idea of safe harbours and takedown policies worldwide, although it also stipulates that ISPs must adopt policies to tackle copyright infringement, which may include account terminations for repeat infringers – although this isn’t mandatory. However, ACTA will also ban unauthorised circumvention of DRM. None of this would be a big deal for the US, but could cause more ructions across Europe.
