They aren’t joking around – Forbes.com reported today that the BSA spent $360,000 in the second quarter to lobby on patent reform, data security and other issues. They lobbied on new legislation that would create a “new coordinator for intellectual property issues” and improve federal efforts against piracy.
This is a sign of things to come – with Microsoft, McAfee and HP behind this agency, they plan on taking piracy issues to the top – and cracking down on offenders.
Would you stand up against an audit? Be sure, because you’d better believe they will find ya!
