The PIRATE Act

The PIRATE Act could lean things in further against "innocent until proven guilty". We've already seen "accidental" seizures of systems with legitmate MP3's (whose filenames just happen to coincide with ones made up by pirates for songs they stole). I don't think that another law is going to improve the situation. We run the risk of having just as many IP laws as gun laws. The act is still illegal, another law will not deter people already determined to commit the crime. (courtesy of /.)
