Venture Capitalists Take Fight Against IP Bill To The Hill

http://j.mp/uzWQYH  (National Journal)

   "Talk about good timing. One day after legislation was proposed to
    crack down on infringement on foreign websites was introduced, more
    than a dozen venture capitalists came to Washington Thursday to
    complain that the measure could have drastic consequences for
    technology startups and innovation.  The venture capitalists were set
    to meet with key lawmakers and staff Thursday on Capitol Hill
    including GOP and Democratic House leadership and members of the House
    Judiciary Committee. The trip was organized by the Consumer
    Electronics Association, a fierce critic of the House bill and a
    similar Senate measure."

This relates to E-PARASTIE and PROTECT IP, of course.
