New Berman/Lamar Bill

Hollywood has come up with a new way to suborn consumers' hearts, minds and wallets.

It's called the Piracy Deterrence and Education Act of 2003 which, if it gets by the US congress, will have the FBI working for the entertainment industry against file-sharers, among others.

HR 2517 is designed to, "To enhance criminal enforcement of the copyright laws, educate the public about the application of copyright law to the Internet, and clarify the authority to seize unauthorized copyrighted works."

Fronting it are Hollywood stalwarts Howard Berman and Lamar Smith.

Under Section 3, Deterrence and Coordination, the director of the FBI would develop a program to, "deter members of the public from committing acts of copyright infringement by--

(A) offering on the Internet copies of copyrighted works, or

(B) making copies of copyrighted works from the Internet, without the authorization of the copyright owners; and,

(2) facilitate the sharing among law enforcement agencies, Internet service providers, and copyright owners of information concerning activities described in subparagraphs (A) and (B) of paragraph (1)."

And by an amazing coincidence, Senator Orrin 'Terminator Four' Hatch (R-Utah) is attempting to revive Berman's failed plan to allow copyright holders to remotely destroy music pirates' systems.

Could these two events be components of yet another Hollywood orchestrated attempt to not merely dominate, but totally control, the on- and offline international entertainment market?

In the meanwhile, under "DESIGNATION OF AGENTS IN CHIPS UNITS", HR 2517 also calls for the US attorney general to:

"... ensure that any unit in the Department of Justice responsible for investigating computer hacking or responsible for investigating intellectual property crimes is assigned at least one agent to support such unit for the purpose of investigating crimes relating to the theft of intellectual property".

and, under TRAINING, the US attorney general would:

"... ensure that each agent assigned under subsection (a) has received training in the investigation and enforcement of intellectual property crimes."

CHIPS are, of course, members of Computer Hacking and Intellectual Property units.
