I don't believe Australia won. It's just that transnational suing under US-AU FTA is prohibited so they backed down on that front. Since the plain packaging law, they've been trying to exert pressure via proxy. I believe right now the Marlboro company has restructured themselves as a Hong Kong firm to approach it there. I'll put this out there in saying that the TPP sets to undermine all of the tangible, real progress made in the reduction of smoking.
