[OT] New Trade Agreement could put restrictions on Tor and other privacy tools

For those of you that haven't seen the Slashdot article this morning Wikileaks has posted a proposed trade agreement that includes restrictions of online privacy tools. 


From the Wikileaks article
The document details provisions of a proposed plurilateral trade agreement that would impose strict enforcement of intellectual property rights related to Internet activity and trade in information-based goods. If adopted, a treaty of this form would impose a strong, top-down enforcement regime imposing new cooperation requirements upon internet service providers, including perfunctory disclosure of customer information, as well as measures restricting the use of online privacy tools.

This could be another one of those pieces of paper that never see the light of day but does anyone here have any thoughts?
