Ars Technica: "Is the Anti-CounterfeitingTrade Agreement (ACTA) a done deal? That's what this weekend's joint government statement implied as another ACTA negotiating round ended in Tokyo.
"Participants in the negotiations constructively resolved nearly all substantive issues and produced a consolidated and largely finalized text of the proposed agreement, which will be submitted ad referendum to their respective authorities," said the statement. "The participants agreed to work expeditiously to resolve the small number of outstanding issues that require further examination in capitals, with a view to finalizing the text of the agreement as promptly as possible."
A copy of the text will be released soon, though it is not yet available."
