Recognition and enforcement of foreign judgements

(Ben McGinnes) #1

We should probably make a submission to this little thing …

Submission: Review of the Copyright Online Infringement Amendment [finished]

I haven’t read the consultation paper, only the overview, but the entire concept of this sounds highly questionable. Like it’s going for an endgame of USA law applying in other countries officially rather than via the bullshit extralegal methods they pull now.

This does not fill me with confidence.

Is this a follow on from the TPP and the ISDS clauses?

It appears to be a bit more than that. Basically it’s getting a judgement for any civil or commercial litigation in one jurisdiction enforced in others. Apparently both intellectual property and privacy matters are not yet confirmed as being included, but they might be (i.e. the USA will probably try to strong arm the former in and the latter out).
