Law360, New York (August 19, 2014, 5:13 PM ET) -- The Electronic Frontier Foundation on Tuesday implored Sen. Ron Wyden, head of the powerful Senate Finance Committee, to craft more transparent rules overseeing the negotiation and passage of free trade agreements, warning against overly restrictive protections for copyrights.

EFF launched a petition that calls on Wyden, D-Ore., to introduce and pass legislation that would grant unprecedented access to trade negotiating texts and meetings for lawmakers and other observers, along with negotiating objectives that would balance the rights of both users and private industry.
