This important book is the first detailed analytical treatment of the Anti-counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) and its impact on intellectual property enforcement. The ACTA had been formulated to deal with the burgeoning growth in the trade in counterfeit and pirate products which was estimated to have increased ten-fold since the promulgation of the TRIPS Agreement in 1994.

The book clarifies how the ACTA supplements the enforcement provisions of the TRIPS Agreement, namely by; expanding the reach of border protection to infringing goods in transit; providing greater detail of the implementation of civil enforcement; and providing for the confiscation of the proceeds of IP crimes. As the book illustrates, a significant additional innovation is the introduction of provisions dealing with enforcement of IPRs in the digital environment.
