Bush admin: RIAA verdict shows law is "effecti

cnet-declan writes "The Bush administration's copyright czar says the RIAA's $222,000 recent jury verdict against a Minnesota woman shows copyright law is "effective" and working as planned. Check out our story with comments from Chris Israel, the U.S. Coordinator for International Intellectual Property Enforcement. Israel is formerly a senior Commerce Department official appointed by President Bush in July 2005 who previously worked for Time Warner's public policy arm (Warner Bros. Records is one of the plaintiffs in the RIAA case). We also have an interview with Rep. Rick Boucher, no fan of the RIAA, on whether Congress will change the law, an analysis of why U.S. copyright law is broken, and four reasons why the RIAA won."

At least they won't be pushing for new, more draconian copyright law with mandatory execution for those with the chutzpah to even sit down and have an organised discussion about breaking some shitty DRM scheme
