RIAA and MPAA cheer as legislators return from their holidays

The RIAA and MPAA are back in the groove of influencing the continuing expansion of US copyright law, according to Declan McCullough. They're back on the old theme of getting the taxpayer and law enforcement agencies to pick up the tab for chasing peer to peer copyright infringers. It is so much better for business if the government pays for your lawyers. They are also promoting a bill through the Senate to ratchet up trade sanctions against pirate countries.

The usual suspects are opposing the proposed legislation.
