Analysis of the Free Trade Agreement

The whole FTA between the US, Colombia and Peru, even though both Uribe and Bush managed to push it through (despite some pretty heavy opposition in Colombia) might be held up by the newly Democratic US Congress, meaning the whole bororó hasn't ended yet. This article has a good English-language analysis of the whole thing and why it's not a very good idea (among other thinghs, intellectual property of things from music to pharmaceuticals would end up being counted under US law, a system which serves corporate interests very well but is pretty closed to other conceptions or the ramifications of new information technology.)
