New ACTA Agreement Sparks Debate Among Anti-Counterfeiting Professionals
The ACTA, a proposed agreement created for the purpose of establishing international standards regarding the enforcement of intellectual property rights, sparked many controversies about the parts relating to the online counterfeiting.

Discussions regarding this agreement started in 2007 with formal negotiations starting from June 2008 which are still ongoing and particularly hard to implement, as it requires voluntary help from several countries. The agreement looks set to be one of the major points of discussion at a forthcoming gathering of industry professionals in early 2011.
Counterfeits online sales as well as the fake webshops will be widely discussed at the Brand Protection and Anti-Counterfeiting Interactive Forum, taking place in Copenhagen, 12-13 April 2011.
