The Intellectual Property Office held a number of stakeholder meetings during the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) negotiations. A range of stakeholders including business, internet service providers and consumer interest and open rights groups participated. The last stakeholder consultation was held in September 2010 prior to the final round of negotiations. Interested parties were also invited to submit comments via the Intellectual Property Office ACTA website.
