TPP

Only in America.  The TPP -- the latest international agreement on Intellectual Property Rights -- is being negotiated in almost absolute secrecy -- the only nongovernmental people with access are "cleared advisers" -- the (mostly-)copyright industry reps who presumably wrote the agreement.  The only thing the U.S. public knows about it is what is contained in a leaked text that is 16 months old.  Read more from David Levine in Slate, but you won't learn much about the agreement itself.
