IP for Me but Not for Thee, Part 347

The Prioritizing Resources and Organization for Intellectual Property Act (or PRO IP Act) was debated a week ago before the House Subcommittee on the Courts, the Internet, and Intellectual Property. It would allow courts to assess copyright infringement damages for each piece of a compilation or derivative work found to infringe copyright, instead of treating the compilation as one infringement, and jack up fines for infringement.

Publishers support the measure.
