Congressional caucus fights piracy

Four members of the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday formally announced a new congressional caucus devoted to combating piracy and promoting stronger intellectual property laws. As previously reported by CNET News.com, a major concern of the caucus will be to focus attention on peer-to-peer copyright infringement and what new laws may be necessary to combat it.

The caucus, which has been applauded by major movie studios and record labels, joins other caucuses such as the Congressional Kidney Caucus, the Congressional Natural Hazards Caucus, and the Congressional Black Caucus. The four founders are Adam Smith, D-Wash., Robert Wexler, D-Fla., Tom Feeney, R-Fla., and Mary Bono, R-Ca.
