Another step towards copyright cops

The Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights Act, which will require the Justice Department to do the legwork in civil copyright litigation, took another step towards the US statute books through the approval of the Senate Judiciary Committee by a majority of 14-4 last Thursday.

Ars Technica bills the move an "enormous gift" to Big Content.

Once the US get their copyright cops, of course, the EU will be clambering for them too.
