Ask yourself what it is the govt wishes to police. Intellectual property rights are already under a form of regulation as a result of current laws. Is it necessary to change and improve such laws and does the current bill represent the necessary change without curtailing existing rights? I haven't seen the text of the bill yet but any bill containing ambiguous language does jeopardize the rights of the innocent. We have every reason to be concerned.
