Noted. Thanks for posting this info, Freya.
Of course this is terrible. And, we don't need further restrictions in more trade bills. We definitely all need to contact our member of Congress to vote against the TPP. Those 90 days are already going by pretty fast!

It's gonna get even worse when TPP goes through - and not just for the US. I'm hoping it gets defeated in Australia, but I'm not optimistic. TV ads show it as the best thing since the wheel was invented!
