X-Rated Super Bowl Stunt By RIAA Member-Label Artist Leaves Orrin Hatch Exposed
Las Vegas-based Webcaster Alliance launched a new round of attacks against Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch today and is urging Americans to hold the Senator accountable for misleading claims about pornography on P2P networks while at the same time protecting the special interests of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The Senator recently introduced the Enhancing Federal Obscenity Reporting and Copyright Enforcement Act of 2003 (the EnFORCE Act), which requires the Department of Justice to, "report to Congress detailed information about the scope of its efforts to investigate and prosecute crimes involving the sexual exploitation of minors or intellectual property."
Webcaster Alliance contends the EnFORCE Act has little if anything to do with protecting children or enhancing obscenity reporting. Instead, the organization believes it is simply another deal designed by Orrin Hatch, specifically to expand exemptions intended to protect the RIAA from legitimate legal claims of monopolistic, anticompetitive behavior.
"In light of the disgusting display during the Halftime show of the Super Bowl, I think it is outrageous for Senator Hatch to maintain his support of the RIAA, while continuing to espouse the evils of P2P networks," said Ann Gabriel, President of Webcaster Alliance.
