The signing of ACTA is seen as a precondition for Mexico's participation 
in the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership).  This was despite warnings from 
the Mexican Senate that it should be studied before being signed. The 
Senate still has to ratify it before it is passed, and that is probably 
where the Mexican battle needs to be waged.
