Using iTunes is now illegal under UK copyright law

In scenes similar to the government's accidental banning of everything, the High Court has overturned copyright legislation to make the transferring of copyright works from one medium to another illegal - one of the main traditional uses of iTunes.

The government legalised copying for private use last year, a practice most thought was already legal.

But, as TorrentFreak reports, the private copying exceptions have been overturned and the Intellectual Property Office has confirmed that ripping a CD in iTunes is no longer allowed.

Utah to keep canyon name despite new push to reconsider

Officials have rebuffed a new push to change the name of a southern Utah canyon that's offensive to some but a point of historical pride for the state's largest NAACP chapter.

The Grand County Council voted 4-3 Tuesday to keep the name Negro Bill Canyon, which was dubbed for a black cowboy whose cattle grazed there in the 1870s, Councilwoman Mary McGann said.

U.S. GOVERNMENT ENTHUSIASTICALLY TWEETS ABOUT ARM SALES TO THE BRUTAL AND AUTOCRATIC EGYPTIAN REGIME

In case you’ve been living under a geopolitical rock for the last couple of years, you’d know that despite a brief period of time during which Egypt appeared headed toward a democratic form of government, it went from one brutal dictator to another. As was the case during Hosni Mubarak’s decades of rule, this is precisely how the U.S. government likes it. So much so, that U.S. officials are not only selling arms to the latest despot, General Abdelfattah al-Sisi, but they are actively bragging about it on Twitter.

Glenn Greenwald reports at the Intercept:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh). This is so completely, predictably pathological, on the part of the US government.

They will support any tinpot dictator, because he is "our thug", then when that thug is ultimately thrown out by a disgusted and angry populace, feign absolute surprise as to why it happened.

The late President Kennedy said it best: "When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable."

China to plant Internet police in top online firms

China’s control over the Internet is set to expand. In a bid to better police local websites, the country’s security forces are establishing offices at the biggest online firms in the country.

The country’s Ministry of Public Security announced the new measures on Tuesday, at a time when authorities have been increasingly concerned also about cyberthreats.

Websites based in China already have to abide by strict provisions for online censorship, and will often delete any content deemed offensive by government censors.

The ministry’s plan, however, will place China’s security forces at the offices of the country’s major websites, so that they can quickly respond to suspected online crimes, it said in a statement.

FEDERAL COURT RULES THAT BUMPER STICKERS, AIR FRESHENERS ARE REASONABLE SUSPICION OF CRIMINAL ACTIVITY

A panel of judges unanimously held that the presence of bumper stickers, air fresheners, and religious symbols in a vehicle can be considered “reasonable suspicion of criminal activity” during a traffic stop.

The Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals was asked to consider if this was a reasonable standard for extending a traffic stop for an investigation. The panel, consisting of Judge Edith H. Jones, Judge Jerry E. Smith, and Judge Gregg J. Costa, unanimously agreed that these were reasonable circumstances for conducting an investigation, even after the relevant steps had been taken to deal with the speeding infraction.

“Officer Tamez had reasonable suspicion of criminal activity apart from the traffic violation,” the Court of Appeals wrote, in its July 20th, 2015, decision, upholding a lower court’s conviction of the couple and seizure of their cash.

FEDERAL COURT RULES THAT BUMPER STICKERS, AIR FRESHENERS ARE REASONABLE SUSPICION OF CRIMINAL ACTIVITY

A panel of judges unanimously held that the presence of bumper stickers, air fresheners, and religious symbols in a vehicle can be considered “reasonable suspicion of criminal activity” during a traffic stop. The case stems from a March 9, 2011, traffic stop that took place along U.S. Highway 77 in Kingsville, Texas. Officer Mike Tamez of the Kingsville Police Department observed a Chevy Tahoe with a woman behind the wheel, going 2 MPH above the posted speed limit. The family vehicle had a man in the passenger seat and a young girl in the back. The vehicle’s bumper was decorated with a Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) sticker and other “pro-police” decals. There were also a few rosaries hanging from the rear view mirror, and some air fresheners visible.

ALL WARS ARE BANKERS' WARS!

"Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of a pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this world would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain slaves of the Bankers and pay for the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits." -- Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the Bank of England in the 1920s, the second richest man in Britain

FBI says that citizens should have no secrets that the government can't access: the Orwellian cyber police state has arrived

As reported by The New American, Comey testified that he believes the government's spy and law enforcement agencies should have unfettered access to everything Americans may store or send in electronic format: On computer hard drives, in so-called i-clouds, in email and in text messaging – for our own safety and protection. Like many in government today, Comey believes that national security is more important than constitutional privacy protections or, apparently, due process. After all, aren't criminals the only ones who really have anything to hide?

The Reagan Administration had arranged for Israeli weapons to be sent to the Guatemalan Army to carry out the genocide

On 8 July 2015, in a pervasively ignored but historically very important news event (briefly mentioned by the BBC), the only trial ever in which a former head of state was convicted in his own country for genocide — in the long court case of Ronald Reagan’s friend Guatemalan General Rios Montt — finally petered out via a declaration by a Guatemalan court, alleging that Montt’s 10 May 2013 Guatemalan conviction and 80-year prison sentence (never served) for genocide, must now simply be abandoned, because Montt is supposedly “mentally incompetent to stand trial." Though a retrial of his case had been promised, it probably won’t happen. Guatemala’s aristocracy seem to have blocked any and all penalty for their General and former President’s genocide.

Bay Area rental crisis squeezing out middle class

The pent-up demand for housing is taking a toll on Mark and Caitlin Fisch, who live with their three young children in a 2-bedroom apartment in Mountain View that rents for $2,575. A well-paid private schoolteacher, Mark has so far been able to make his payments, while Caitlin home-schools the kids. But with their lease expiring in September, they learned this month that the rent is going up -- way up -- to $3,600. Their options: sign a new one-year lease at the new rate, go month-to-month at $6,566, or leave. The family expects to do the latter.

Gun Control Lies

My town, New York City, enforces rigid gun laws. Police refused to assign me a gun permit. The law doesn't even let me hold a fake gun on TV to demonstrate something.

But New York politicians are so eager to vilify gun ownership that they granted an exception to the anti-gun group States United to Prevent Gun Violence. New York allowed States United to set up a fake gun store, where cameras filmed potential gun customers being spoofed by an actor pretending to be a gun-seller.

The fight is not over! Libertarian Tim Donnelly launches referendum to overturn California's forced vaccination law SB277

The passing of California's SB277, a bill that eliminates a parent's choice to not vaccinate their children due to philosophical or religious beliefs, was a somber moment not only for the state of California, but for the nation as a whole, as no child should ever be involuntarily subjected to vaccines that have the potential to cause brain damage and even death.

But the fight isn't over yet.

Libertarian Tim Donnelly, a former state assemblyman and governor candidate, launched a referendum to overturn California's forced vaccination law. While the filing in and of itself is a victory, there is a lot of work to be done, and a very short amount of time to do it, so we need your help.

Five Studies: The Psychology of the Ultra-Rich, According to the Research

"Let me tell you about the very rich. They are different from you and me. They possess and enjoy early, and it does something to them, makes them soft where we are hard, and cynical where we are trustful, in a way that, unless you were born rich, it is very difficult to understand. They think, deep in their hearts, that they are better than we are because we had to discover the compensations and refuges of life for ourselves. Even when they enter deep into our world or sink below us, they still think that they are better than we are. They are different."

Despite Epic Crash of World Economy, White Collar Prosecutions at 20-Year Low

Despite lofty rhetoric from politicians who vowed in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis to hold Wall Street accountable, U.S. Justice Department statistics show a "long-term collapse" of federal white collar crime prosecutions, which are down to their lowest level in 20 years, according to a new report from Syracuse University.

The analysis of thousands of records by the university's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) shows a more than 36 percent decline in such prosecutions since the middle of the Clinton administration, when the decline first began. While there was an uptick early in Barack Obama's presidency, current projections indicate that by the end of the 2015 fiscal year, such prosecutions will be at their lowest level since 1995.

But that doesn't mean white collar crime itself—which involves a wide range of activities such as health care fraud and the violation of tax, securities, antitrust, federal procurement, and other laws—is on the wane.

Homeland Security admits CISA info-sharing bill could 'sweep away' privacy protections

Responding to a July query from Minnesota Senator Al Franken, DHS Deputy Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said that some provisions of the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) “could sweep away important privacy protections” and that proposed legislation “raises privacy and civil liberties concerns.”

The bill authorizes companies to share information about cyber threats with “any federal entity.” Any company participating in the data sharing would be immune from consumer lawsuits.

5 Insane Police Forces That Have Zero Right To Arrest You

It's not easy being a cop. While firemen reap all the praise, pose in calendars, play Xbox all day, and give mouth-to-mouth to sexy coeds (oh, right, in addition to occasionally fighting fires), police officers are often the subject of derision and scorn. But obviously law enforcers are vital if we want to live in a society where pesky things like rape, murder, and double-parking don't occur with The Purge-level frequency. And many of them are willing to put up with all the abuse and annoyances out of a sense of duty to their fellow humans.

So imagine how frustrating it must be when they run across organized groups of half-cocked, wannabe, do-gooding amateurs

Movie Studios Seek SOPA Power Through Broad Site-Blocking Order

Major movie studios are again trying to make a website they don’t like disappear without a trial. This time, the studios are asking for one court order to bind every domain name registrar, registry, hosting provider, payment processor, caching service, advertising network, social network, and bulletin board—in short, the entire Internet—to block and filter a site called Movietube. If they succeed, the studios could set a dangerous precedent for quick website blocking with little or no court supervision, and with Internet service and infrastructure companies conscripted as enforcers. That precedent would create a powerful tool of censorship—which we think should be called SOPApower, given its similarity to the ill-fated SOPA bill. It will be abused, which is why it’s important to stop it from being created in the first place.

Report: U.S.-Led Strikes In Iraq And Syria Killed Hundreds Of Civilians

U.S.-led airstrikes targeting the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria have likely killed at least 459 civilians over the past year, a report by an independent monitoring group said Monday. The coalition had no immediate comment.

The report by Airwars, a project aimed at tracking the international airstrikes targeting the extremists, said it believed 57 specific strikes killed civilians and caused 48 suspected "friendly fire" deaths. It said the strikes have killed more than 15,000 Islamic State militants.

While Airwars noted the difficulty of verifying information in territory held by the IS group, which has kidnapped and killed journalists and activists, other groups have reported similar casualties from the U.S.-led airstrikes.

"Almost all claims of noncombatant deaths from alleged coalition strikes emerge within 24 hours — with graphic images of reported victims often widely disseminated," the report said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a Biblical injunction "That which you sow, you shall also reap".

Psychologist who trains cops to shoot first, ask questions later makes big money at their trials

A behavioral psychologist who trains law enforcement officers to shoot first and deal with the consequences later is profiting mightily when they go to trial and he is called upon to testify on their behalf, reports the New York Times.

Relying upon his own research — that an editor for The American Journal of Psychology calls “pseudoscience” — Dr. William J. Lewinski offers seminars to law enforcement departments around the country, telling police officers they can be shot by a suspect within a quarter of a second should the suspect be armed.

Should an officer go to trail, or face a grand jury indictment, Lewinski is there to defend their actions for $1,000 an hour.

While a string of high profile incidents involving police shooting unarmed suspects has roiled the country, Lewinski continues to tell cops that they can’t wait to act or they may end up dead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if this man might have been partially trained by Israel's IDF, which fervently believes that the only GOOD Palestinian... is a very DEAD Palestinian.

One has to ask; what can be reasonably said of a man who trains cops to assassinate perps, then charges a grand an hour to defend them?!?

Being arrested for a crime isn’t supposed to be the same thing as being convicted, yet many people awaiting trial suffer the ultimate penalty—death—while they’re in custody. A report (pdf) by the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) shows that 73% of those who die in jail haven’t been convicted of a crime. In addition, 29% of those who die are African-American, more than double their percentage of the U.S. population at large.

Corruption is Legal in the USA

A well-done animated guide to the 2014 study (often cited by Washington’s Blog) conducted by teams of researchers out of Princeton and Northwestern, looking at whether the US population can influence public policy. This is the largest study of the topic to date, looking at nearly 2,000 policy issues.

Famous World Ideologies, as explained by references to Cows

Feudalism: You have two cows. Your lord takes some of the milk.

Fascism: You have two cows. The government takes both, hires you to take care of them, and sells you the milk.

Real World Communism: You share two cows with your neighbors. You and your neighbors bicker about who has the most “ability” and who has the most “need”. Meanwhile, no one works, no one gets any milk, and the cows drop dead of starvation.

Capitalism: You don’t have any cows. The bank will not lend you money to buy cows, because you don’t have any cows to put up as collateral.

and more!

It's Getting Tough To Tell Planned Parenthood From THe Nazis

German SS officer and Auschwitz “physician” Josef Mengele once wrote, “There’s only one truth and one true beauty …There’s no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ in nature. There’s only ‘appropriate’ or ‘inappropriate’… Both sides receive equal chances. Nevertheless, nature provides a strainer. Things that are ‘inappropriate’ fall through since they lose in the struggle for survival.”

More lately, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director for medical services, had this to say: “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part. I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”

It’s almost like Planned Parenthood is the strainer and babies, those inappropriate little consequences of life, fall through in the struggle for survival while the organs, the appropriate parts, survive and get sold at market. Ain’t progress grand?

The Horrifying American Roots of Nazi Eugenics

Hitler and his henchmen victimized an entire continent and exterminated millions in his quest for a co-called "Master Race."

But the concept of a white, blond-haired, blue-eyed master Nordic race didn't originate with Hitler. The idea was created in the United States, and cultivated in California, decades before Hitler came to power. California eugenicists played an important, although little known, role in the American eugenics movement's campaign for ethnic cleansing.

Birth control leader Margaret Sanger: Darwinist, racist and eugenicist

Margaret Sanger (14 Sept. 1879–6 Sept. 1966) was the most prominent leader of the modern birth control and ‘free love’ movements.1 Sanger’s mother was a devout Irish Catholic; her father, Michael Higgins, was an unstable man unable to provide adequately for his large family. Although a skilled stonemason and tombstone carver, Mr Higgins was unable to properly care for his family because he alienated many of his customers with his radical politics.2 He drank heavily when he had the money while his 11 children ‘suffered bitterly from cold, privation, and hunger.’

The Truth About MARGARET SANGER

At a March 1925 international birth control gathering in New York City, a speaker warned of the menace posed by the "black" and "yellow" peril. The man was not a Nazi or Klansman; he was Dr. S. Adolphus Knopf, a member of Margaret Sanger's American Birth Control League (ABCL), which along with other groups eventually became known as Planned Parenthood.

Sanger's other colleagues included avowed and sophisticated racists. One, Lothrop Stoddard, was a Harvard graduate and the author of The Rising Tide of Color against White Supremacy. Stoddard was something of a Nazi enthusiast who described the eugenic practices of the Third Reich as "scientific" and "humanitarian." And Dr. Harry Laughlin, another Sanger associate and board member for her group, spoke of purifying America's human "breeding stock" and purging America's "bad strains." These "strains" included the "shiftless, ignorant, and worthless class of antisocial whites of the South."

REPORT: Navy to Charge Officer Who Fired on Islamist During Chattanooga Terror Attack

Lock and Load! It is getting close to Rock N Roll Time here in America!
If this is true this is horrible and just plain mean and stupid!

Navy Lt. Commander will reportedly be charged for shooting at the Chattanooga terrorist

A report at The Navy Times in July confirmed that one of the Marines shot during the Chattanooga terrorist attack exchanged fire with the terrorist. Navy Lt. Cmdr Timothy White also shot back at the terrorist.

But rather than being celebrated as a hero, Lt. Commander White may be charged for discharging a firearm on federal property.

We just sued the Justice Department over the FBI’s secret rules for using National Security Letters on journalists

Today we filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Justice Department over their unpublished rules for using National Security Letters and so-called informal “exigent letters” to conduct surveillance of journalists.

Last year, after a backlash stemming from the surveillance of Associated Press and Fox News journalists, the Justice Department released new guidelines that supposedly barred the government from issuing subpoenas to journalists unless very high standards were met. The rules were generally a victory for the press. However, buried in the news reports about the change was the fact that the Justice Department reportedly thinks the media guidelines do not apply when issuing National Security Letters (NSLs). As the New York Times wrote at the time:

Obama Appointee And Bundler Blocks More Video Releases By Group Behind Planned Parenthood Sting

A federal judge late Friday granted a temporary restraining order against the release of recordings made at an annual meeting of abortion providers. The injunction is against the Center for Medical Progress, the group that has unveiled Planned Parenthood’s participation in the sale of organs harvested from aborted children.

Judge William H. Orrick, III, granted the injunction just hours after the order was requested by the National Abortion Federation.

Orrick was nominated to his position by hardline abortion supporter President Barack Obama. He was also a major donor to and bundler for President Obama’s presidential campaign. He raised at least $200,000 for Obama and donated $30,800 to committees supporting him, according to Public Citizen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Face it: much of the Judiciary and Congress is owned in this country; so is the Presidency.

Shooter in Garland, Texas, attack bought gun in 2010 under Fast and Furious operation

Five years before he was shot to death in the failed terrorist attack in Garland, Texas, Nadir Soofi walked into a suburban Phoenix gun shop to buy a 9-millimeter pistol. At the time, Lone Wolf Trading Co. was known among gun smugglers for selling illegal firearms. And with Soofi's history of misdemeanor drug and assault charges, there was a chance his purchase might raise red flags in the federal screening process. Inside the store, he fudged some facts on the form required of would-be gun buyers.

CISA: The Dirty Deal Between Google and the NSA That No One Is Talking About

One of the things that civil liberties activists like to lament about is that the general public seems to care more about Google and Facebook using their personal data to target advertising than the government using it to target drone strikes.

The reality is that both types of abuse are dangerous, and they work hand in hand.

It's hard to find a more perfect example of this collusion than in a bill that's headed for a vote soon in the U.S. Senate: the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act, or CISA.

CISA is an out and out surveillance bill masquerading as a cybersecurity bill. It won't stop hackers. Instead, it essentially legalizes all forms of government and corporate spying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Upon taking office, President Obama originally promised the American people "...the most transparent Administration in history."

With legislation like this getting passed, can someone please tell me: where the HELL did that administration go?!?

And please don't tell me Obama will veto this, because he won't.

The Look of Silence: Finding our Humanity in the Face of Genocide

Our challenge today is to harness the good in ourselves, to be more humane, more gentle, more caring, to treat each being in our world as someone of infinite worth. As technology gives us access to the far reaches of the globe, we must see that infinite worth in a man or woman in Sumatra who now has to live next to the man who tortured and killed their loved one, as we also strive to see it in our neighbor at home.

When we use atrocity to inspire us to act, to ask the right questions, to reach across the globe and try to stop someone from being killed or suffering, our world will become a more livable one. Only then will we be able to hope to turn back the tide on genocide.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I had the opportunity to hear Bishop Tutu speak at St. John's Episcopal Church many, many years ago, about peace and human justice; and still today, he is an indefatigable campaigner for those values.

Let us all take a moment to embrace the values expressed in the first paragraph I copied from this article; I can promise you that the world, both immediate, and universal, CAN be a better place for that action.

I am no Pollyanna; however, I do know that kindness and compassion can be contagious!! :-)

HISTORY IS REPEATING – GERMAN GOVERNMENT LAUNCHES INVESTIGATION OF JOURNALISTS FOR TREASON

If it were up to the Federal Attorney General and the President of the German Domestic Security Agency, two of our reporters would soon be in prison for at least two years. Today, we were officially informed about investigations against our Markus Beckedahl, Andre Meister and an unknown“ party. The accusation: Treason.

Germany has opened a treason investigation into a news website a broadcaster said had reported on plans to increase state surveillance of online communications.

The public broadcaster ARD reported Netzpolitik.org had published an article on how the BfV was seeking extra funding to increase its online surveillance, and another about plans to set up a special unit to monitor social media, both based on leaked confidential documents.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When telling the truth becomes a crime against the state which makes it illegal, that society is in DEEP trouble.

The US government has already gone way down this dark path; Snowden can NEVER return home without being flung into a prison cell for the rest of his life, and he knows it.

Partial Birth Abortion and The Baby Body Parts Market

Buncha damn Ghouls!

Here is the Interstate Commerce Loophole

The clinics “donate” fetal tissue to the harvesters who then donate them to the researchers. The Harvesters pay clinics a lease fee for the space they use to process the dead baby bodies. They are also allowed to charge reasonable sums associated with the transportation, implantation, processing, preservation quality control, or storage of human fetal tissue.

An email from way back in 1994 purportedly leaked from the University of Washington describes how fetal products are readied for market:

Comprehensive List Of Companies That Uses Aborted Fetal Cells As Flavor

Children of God for Life is calling on the public to boycott products of major food companies that are partnering with Senomyx, a biotech company that produces artificial flavor enhancers, unless the company stops using aborted fetal cell lines to test their products.

In 2010, the pro-life organization wrote to Senomyx CEO Kent Snyder, pointing out that moral options for testing their food additives could and should be used.

But when Senomyx ignored their letter, they wrote to the companies Senomyx listed on their website as “collaborators” warning them of public backlash and threatened boycott. Food giants Pepsico, Kraft Foods, Campbell Soup, Solae and Nestlé are the primary targets of the boycott, though Senomyx boasts other international partners on their website.

FLASHBACK: Aborted fetus cells used in beauty creams

A San Francisco cosmetics company has ignited an outcry among pro-lifers for including an unexpected ingredient in its anti-aging creams: skin-cell proteins from an aborted fetus.

Children of God for Life, a watchdog group that monitors the use of fetal material in medical products, called last week for a boycott of all treatments manufactured by Neocutis Inc., which acknowledges that the key ingredient in its product line was developed from an aborted boy.

Mandated Vaccines: Finding Our Path to Freedom

By Rosanne Lindsay ND

In June, California became the first state to mandate vaccination for all children attending public and private schools. Similar mandates will apply to all adults working in daycare settings. There are currently 58 bills in 24 different states that would limit your rights when it comes to vaccines, or lose your job. A proposed Federal law will attempt to jab the entire nation.

While we were sleeping, presidential candidates began practicing medicine without a license, declaring no one has a right to refuse vaccination, meanwhile openly accepting bribes from the pharmaceutical industry. In Australia, “‘conscientious objectors’ to childhood vaccination will have their childcare and family tax payments stopped.”

US Cops Kill More People in a Day than Norwegian Cops Have in a Decade

With Americans being killed by police every day, one begins to wonder what the country would be like if cops were trained differently and stopped resorting to lethal force so quickly. One country we can look to is Norway. In Norway, cops have shot only one person to death. That was nearly a decade ago.

Treason charges: What lurks behind the bizarre allegations

Instead of indicting, and persecuting, those who, to this day, function within the public sector as the troika’s minions and lieutenants (while receiving their substantial salaries from the long-suffering Greek taxpayers), politicians and parties whom the electorate condemned for their efforts to turn Greece into a protectorate are now persecuting me, aided and abetted by the oligarchs’ media. I wear their accusations as badges of honour.

Disappointment as TPPA talks break down

Trade Minister Tim Groser says he is disappointed a landmark free-trade pact stumbled after talks broke down in Hawaii.

Negotiations among 12 Pacific nations failed to reach a conclusion.

"Good progress was made this week, but a number of challenging issues remain, including intellectual property and market access for dairy products", Mr Groser said.

"We will continue to work toward a successful conclusion. This is about getting the best possible deal for New Zealand, not a deal at any cost."

Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations are aimed at erasing most tariffs and other barriers to trade and investment among participants.

It would also clarify and standardize trade rules, making it easier for companies to sell goods and services in the Pacific Rim.

The wide-ranging discussions have addressed tariffs on autos, rice and dairy products, as well as intellectual property protections for pharmaceuticals.

Legal challenge to be lodged surrounding TPP

A legal challenge will be lodged in the High Court next week over the secrecy around the Trans Pacific Partnership negotiations.

Outspoken TPPA critic Professor Jane Kelsey was met with a blanket refusal when she made an Official Information Act request to Trade Minister Tim Groser back in January.

She made the request on the back of a decision from the EU Ombudsman that the consequences of a deal being discussed between the EU and the US, Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), were so great that the people of Europe needed to see much more detail, and produced a long list of what needed to be produced.

When her OIA request was denied, the Minister's refusal had to be reviewed by the Ombudsman before any court action could be lodged. Professor Kelsey only received that Ombudsman's report on Wednesday - four and a half months later.
