On January 5, 2012, Senator Ron Wyden requested that the State Department provide an in-depth analysis of what obligations ACTA would subject the US to under international law. Senator Wyden wants President Obama to submit ACTA to the Senate for ratification as a treaty, but the president insists it is merely an executive agreement which is not binding under US law. However, the other signatories to ACTA disagree, and are all ratifying it as a treaty.
