    WikiLeaks publishes secret draft of Trans-Pacific Partnership treaty | The Verge

    The US and Japan are trying to present India, China, and the rest of the emerging world with a fait accompli as it relates to IP and patent tyranny. China and India should push the RCEP forward, and encourage the emerging nations in the TPP negotiations to back out post-haste. If they don't, China and India should make a PR effort to explain to the populations in those countries exactly how their trade negotiators are selling them out in Salt Lake City.

    Looking at the samsung vs apple cases that happened recently in Japan and the U.S (and still on going), you realize that the patent system they are pushing is completely broken.:pound: Similarly in medicine it's quite terrible too.
