  • [7-28-08] US Senator Concerned 'The Dark Knight' Will Lose Money From Piracy

    Last week leading members of the US Senate Judiciary Committee announced plans to introduced yet another copyright bill. The latest is called the Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights Act of 2008.

    The new bill borrows heavily from other recent proposed legislation, most notably the Intellectual Property Enforcement Act of 2007 and the Pro-IP Act, which passed the full Senate earlier this year. It includes controversial provisions which would increase the maximum damages available for copyright infringement and make the Department of Justice responsible for taking civil action on behalf of copyright holders.

    A statement from Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and one of the bill's sponsors, said "Many times, a criminal sanction is simply too severe for the harm done." It fails, however, to mention why the solution isn't to simply increase criminal penalties rather than giving copyright holder free legal representation.

    Ironically Leahy also used the recently released blockbuster 'The Dark Knight' as an example of the products which are at risk of losing money from piracy. Perhaps someone should explain to Mr. Leahy that 'The Dark Knight' is already one of the most profitable movies of all time, and Warner Brothers seems to be doing well enough to hire their own lawyers.

    Instead Senator Leahy, along with Senators Arlen Specter (Pennsylvania), Evan Bayh (Indiana), George Voinovich (Ohio), Dianne Feinsten (California), and John Cornyn (Texas) would prefer to spend taxpayers money to pursue civil penalties, in addition to any criminal prosecution that might occur.

          I'm more worried that it could clog our tubes and crash our internets. It's not like a truck.

                Regular BS. Whatever makes a dollar. The gov't is going to get you on THEIR BEHALF??? Crazy shit, but not surprising in the least. Soon the gov't and "industry" will be one entity like in any good fascist society......
