"WikiLeaks révèle la partie 'Propriété Intellectuelle' du traité transpacifique (TPP)

 

Au sein de l'Union européenne, les ayants droit sont inquiétés par le traité transatlantique, dans la mesure où celui-ci pourrait imposer la notion juridique du copyright sur le droit d'auteur, privant ainsi le créateur de son droit moral. Mais, de l'autre côté du globe, un traité transpacifique (TPP) se prépare également, dans le plus grand secret. WikiLeaks a dévoilé la partie "Propriété intellectuelle" du traité. (...)"
