If you didn’t already think the people behind the RIAA and MPAA were Insane, we’re positive that your opinion on them will change as soon as your read what the two associations have proposed in a recent letter to the Office of Intellectual Property Enforcement. Here are but some of the changes the two have asked for:
The installation of spyware on computers which would seek out and automatically Delete illegally obtained Media
Censorship of the Internet which would Block the Transfer of Illegal files
Giving Border Guards the Authority to Search one’s Tech gear for illegal files
The lobbying of Foreign Governments to follow suit
Having the Department Of Justice and Department Of Homeland Security actively and Swiftly enforcing COPYRIGHT LAWS
Scary as Hell, right?
