More Corporate Welfare

Last week, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved S. 3325, the Enforcement of Intellectual Property Act of 2008. This allows the Department of Justice to enforce civil copyright claims which means the government can do the MPAA and RIAA's intellectual property rights enforcement work for them. And all at taxpayer expense. This bill is being introduced in the Senate and is likely to pass. I guess the thousands of lawsuits filed by the MPAA and RIAA are getting expensive. Getting the government to do it sounds like a great way to cut costs.
