The negotiations for the ACTA, the secret Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, are underway in Mexico this week, and there's been a lot of coverage around the world of the lack of transparency in these talks. For those who are not familiar with the agreement, I want to recommend Michael Geist's excellent five part ACTA Guide:

Parts four and five will be up later this week. So far, these posts do a great job of succinctly explaining the ACTA process, what we know of the content, and the concerns about the lack of transparency.
