New, tougher copyright legislation in the works

A story surfaced yesterday that a new and tougher rewrite of the DMCA is in the works. Sponsored by Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, Jr. (R-WI) (and not Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX) as reported by Cnet), the bill would drastically tighten current laws and close some of the "loopholes" that the RIAA and MPAA think exist now. Of course, what they call loopholes, we call Fair Use.
