Hatch head of IP Committee in Senate

Senator Orrin Hatch to head IP Committee in Senate

I find that bit of news disturbing. Senator Hatch is a very strong IP proponent, in my opinion to the detriment of the public and the authors themselves (in favor of the entertainment companies). He has also proposed truly terrible laws- parts of the Induce Act and the truly awful suggestion that the music industry should be able to destroy consumer PCs (and if they were mistaken in their targets, oh well.)
