    World wide content piracy is a problem. But so is Congress.

    From Forbes:
    From SiliconValley.com:
    In case you didn't notice, when it comes to media interests and protecting their rights by abusing yours, the lefty producer/director/actor interests break out Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt. and the corporate right interests Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah.

    It is always amazing when it comes down to money trampling over the rights ordinary folks, politicians from both the left and right seem to side with money. Unfortunately, monied interests on the other side - Google, Yahoo, eBay and Amazon.com - woke up to the threat late in the game.

    After reviewing the proposed overkill, as an interested citizen and voter you may want to drop your Senators and Representative a note.

    Don't get me started. I'm already boiling mad from the CSR thread.

    Then the IPS's are forced to block its access in the US. Think China. Works very well there.
