WikiLeaks has released a second updated version of the Trans-Pacific
Partnership (TPP) Intellectual Property Rights Chapter. The TPP is the
world's largest economic trade agreement that will, if it comes into force,
encompass more than 40% of the world's GDP.

The IP chapter covers topics from pharmaceuticals, patent registrations and
copyright issues to digital rights. Experts say it will affect freedom of
information, civil liberties and access to medicines globally.
