Lets go into the world of insanity and consider this item in Congress.
The moron is a psychopath with almost unlimited dictatorial powers including searches without warrants, no habeas corpus, and the list goes on.
Now he can authorize a search of his political opponents' computers for unlawful intellectual property and seize the computer if they find even one item.
Ah, but what else? He can have his people see what other compromising information is on the computer.
Richard Nixon wouldn't have had to burglarize the fucking Watergate Hotel to gather all the damaging and confidential information he wanted.
The criminals in the federal government are now trying to legalize the seizure of computers and other property under the guise of strengthening intellectual property laws. HR 4279 or the Prioritizing Resources and Organization for Intellectual Property Act of 2008 which was recently passed by the U.S. House of Representatives, will give the government draconian powers to do just this. This legislation gives the government the power to seize property that facilitates the violation of intellectual property laws. The legislation also mandates the formation of a formal Intellectual Property Enforcement Division within the office of the Deputy Attorney General to enforce this madness. In addition, a new office called the Office of the United States Intellectual Property Enforcement Representative is created within the Executive Office of the President. [emphasis mine]
