Groups Complain of Continued Secrecy About Trade Pact

EFF IN THE NEWS

The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) continues to withhold important details about a closely held copyright enforcement trade agreement, despite promises from U.S. President Barack Obama to release more information, two digital rights groups said Wednesday...

"We are very disappointed with the USTR's decision to continue to withhold these documents," EFF senior counsel David Sobel said in a statement. "The president promised an open and transparent administration. But in this case and others we are litigating at EFF, we've found that the [president's] new guidelines liberalizing implementation of the Freedom of Information Act haven't changed a thing."
