DOJ Plays Favorites with RIAA

7
points

The DOJ has sided with a Recording Industry Association of America lawsuit, giving the OK to high fines per music track downloaded.

Dangerous Intellectual-property Bill Passes Senate But without DOJ Authoriy

8
points

The Intellectual Property Bill was passed last week by the US Senate, but not before a provision that would have allowed the Department of Justice to directly sue copyright infringers on behalf of the movie and music industries. Still, many feel that the passing of the bill favors big media companies at a time when digital content has proven to favor more open distribution models.
