>Dear Colleagues,
>
>The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) invites you to 
>attend a briefing on the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) 
>on 24 October at 10am.  The briefing will be hosted by DFAT and 
>include representatives of government agencies with carriage of 
>areas of domestic policy potentially affected by an ACTA.  We will 
>provide a general update on developments in ACTA negotiations and 
>seek stakeholder views on an ACTA.  The October briefing is designed 
>to compliment formal submissions received and information made 
>public through the DFAT website 
>http://www.dfat.gov.au/trade/acta/.  This site was most recently 
>updated on 1 October 2008, in advance of the 3rd round of 
>negotiations being held 8-10 October in Tokyo.
>
>For your information, we do not anticipate negotiations will 
>conclude before Christmas.  There is still some way to go in 
>agreeing a text that addresses commercial-scale counterfeiting and 
>piracy. We expect there to be several more rounds of negotiation 
>before a text can be brought to completion, and will not be in a 
>position to share draft text at our October briefing.  We anticipate 
>further consultation on a text once finalised.
