Kevin Way writes: A new copyright bill would create a new government agency in charge of copyright enforcement, increase fines, and grant it sweeping new powers. In particular, the bill grants this new agency the right to seize any computer or network hardware used to "facilitate" a copyright crime and auction it off. You would not need to be found guilty at trial to face this penalty. You may want to read a justication of it, and criticism presented by Declan McCullagh, The EFF, and Public Knowledge.
