'The book, which came out over a decade ago, is a detailed accounting of
how a bunch of legacy industry lobbyists -- including those from
Hollywood, the pharmaceutical industry and the tech industry -- figured
out how to convince trade officials around the globe that stronger
intellectual property enforcement was a "free trade" issue. And they did
so almost entirely behind closed doors, and without most people (even
those who are focused on intellectual property issues) being fully aware
of what was happening when it was happening.'

Another interesting book to check out.
