The press is so weirdly focused on just the dairy and auto industries that it’s missing deeper, far-reaching problems with the TPP. Those are about intellectual “property” and liberty. That’s where the TPP is scariest (at least what we know from leaks–also a big problem that the actual public has been prevented from knowing about this but industry got in early).
The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) said:
“TPP raises significant concerns about citizens’ freedom of expression, due process, innovation, the future of the Internet’s global infrastructure, and the right of sovereign nations to develop policies and laws that best meet their domestic priorities. In sum, the TPP puts at risk some of the most fundamental rights that enable access to knowledge for the world’s citizens.”
