Submitted by: arnesr Source: http://www.wired.com/"I'm troubled by the growing signs that (intellectual property) piracy is now being undertaken by organized crime groups," Reno said at a luncheon organized by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.She compared the phenomenon to illegal drug trafficking, money laundering, and gun-running in terms of its severity and need for police attention.Reno said that intellectual property crimes such as piracy "should be regarded as an extraditable offense," and nations should follow the lead of the United States in approving more criminal copyright laws. When will it be a crime, to ask high prices for things that are worth a tenth ? When will it be a crime to use your power to keep prices high ?
