RIAA gets empowered

Here’s my morning frightfest.  According to a recent post up on BoingBoing, the House has just approved a bill that allows law enforcement to reposes anything that has been used to violate copyright in a criminal proceeding.  In theory this means that if a patron uses a library workstation to download an mp3, the library could lose their computer.  It’s amazing what a good Lobbyist can accomplish.
