Legislate early, litigate often

One of the bills that may pass during the lame-duck session of the 180th Congress is HR2391, the Intellectual Property Protection Act. This is an omnibus bill containing some of everyone's favorite IP-related bills, including Create, PDEA, Pirate and the Family Movie Act. Each of these bills deserves to be debated on its own individual merits, but Congress may pass the omnibus act for the sake of "doing something" in this field.
