Something to Keep an Eye On

I doubt that this new law, which would allow the government to seize computers that are used to facilitate intellectual property theft, is going to pass in its present form, or be upheld as constitutional if it is . . . but I didn't believe that the courts were going to uphold the laws that allow the government to seize property allegedly used in the drug trade without anyone actually being convicted of anything, either. But things could get very, very interesting for libraries that have public access computers if it does pass. This is definitely something that's worth paying attention to.
