Abstract
The official unveiling of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) in 2010 triggered a wave of concern for developing countries, especially in respect of ACTA's emphasis on building a stronger international framework in the form of a TRIPs plus enforcement against trademark counterfeiting. ACTA has been negotiated by Australia, Canada, the EU and its 27 Member States, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Morocco, New Zealand, Singapore, Switzerland and the Uruted States. All countries have signed ACTA except for Switzerland and Mexico. The legal framework of ACTA embodies civil and criminal enforcement, border measures as well as enforcement issues related to the digital environment.
