I didn’t know George W. Bush was still president.

From the Mises Blog:

The White House today proposed sweeping revisions to U.S. copyright law, including making “illegal streaming” of audio or video a federal felony and allowing FBI agents to wiretap suspected infringers. In a 20-page white paper (PDF), the Obama administration called on the U.S. Congress to fix “deficiencies that could hinder enforcement” of intellectual property laws.”

FBI? Wiretapping? For “Illegal streaming?” I thought George W. Bush was not the president anymore? I guess this is just reason 10,582,939 that the new boss is the same as the old boss. Get a clue Obama and step into the 21st century. Stop using the blunt force of the state to bludgeon your citizens with.
