High-profile panel suggests major escalation in war on intellectual property thieves. Guess who's behind this lunacy?

It's not like we needed any more proof the content cartel will stop at nothing to achieve its goals, that there is no argument too base and no tactic too vile for the champions of copyright abuse. But thanks to The Commission on the Theft of American Intellectual Property (TCOTAIP), we have it in spades.
Last week, TCOTAIP published its recommendations on what the U.S. government should do to combat the scourge of piracy. The seven-person commission is made up of professional bureau- crats and former high-tech CEOs, and it's co-chaired by former GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman and ex-director of national intelligence Dennis C. Blair. Though the report has China's counterfeiting and trade-secret thievery in its cross- hairs, the implications extend easily to any file-sharing, copyright-mocking scallywag.
