PRO-IP Act Passes Judiciary Committee

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 5 years ago

I Don't Believe in Imaginary Property writes "The PRO-IP Act has passed the Judiciary Committee unanimously, thanks to the support of committee chairman Rep. John Conyers (D-MI). We've discussed this before — it's the same bill that would create copyright cops with the power to seize computers, when powers like that have been systematically abused. But surely they think the bill is just wonderful now simply because they cut the provision that would've increased statutory damages, while keeping the rest. This is the same bill that William Patry called the 'most outrageously glutinous IP bill ever introduced'."
