Congress Calls To Arms Against Online Pirates

from the wait-a-second... dept

Not a huge surprise here, but Congress is creating a special caucus to create stronger intellectual property laws in order to “combat piracy”. Funny how they don’t even consider the idea that our intellectual property laws are part of the problem (or perhaps creating the problem). Instead, they’re starting from the assumption that the laws are too weak. Wouldn’t it make more sense to start from a few steps back, and really look at what the real issues are when it comes to intellectual property?
