  Seems like there's a freshman Represenative, Rep. Adam Schiff (of
Califorina) just introduced a similar bill in Congress, as I guess he
couldn't wait for the CBDPTHTHTHTHTHT to pass in the Senate.

  Also from that report:

        In the 2000 election cycle , the entertainment industry handed
        Democrats a whopping $24.2 million in contributions compared to

  I've also heard that the Computer Industry generated over $600 billion in
profits last year, while Hollywood only $35 billion.
