And More on the PDEA
Derek Slater: "The bill itself lists many 'findings' about the state of piracy and that it must be counteracted, but there seems to have been no research regarding whether heightened criminal enforcement under lower standards would be beneficial. Much the same can be said for the Pirate Act's allowing the feds to go after infringers as a civil offense. No one at the hearing even thought to compare the war on piracy to the war on drugs. Moreover, on a more concrete level, there's not even the most rudimentary evidence regarding whether these prosecutions and lawsuits would have any practical impact."
