* MafiAA Maligns Fair Use

Personal Stuff/Random News
Ars covers a "whisper campaign" by the MafiAA companies to attack the fair use rights of consumers:

The various campaigns to increase copyright power have also ended up in the US Congress, where the PRO-IP Act currently looks set to come to a vote this year. The bill, which has the backing of copyright owners (and which Patry once called "gluttonous"), would increase statutory damages that the groups could seek without needing to show any actual harm.

According to Patry, today "it is not enough to have vast rights: corporate content owners see a need to eliminate any limitations on those rights too."
