I know that the JOBS (Justifying Unscrupulous Bucket Shops) Act has passed the Senate, or at least past its last major procedural hurdle. (It’s hard to tell from the stories.)
I also know that a number of amendments passed, which (thankfully) tightened up the bill a bit.
A couple of amendments, unrelated to the general thrust of the bill, were made by Ron Wyden (D-OR) that pertained to the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA). Specifically, he wants to put the bill to a congressional vote, the Obama administration is claiming that they can implement this as a purely executive act, and for a complete release of all documents relating to the discussions.
I think that our current IP regime (particularly patents, which are nuts) is out of control, so I am hoping that his motions were approved.
I can find stories that said that he was going to propose the bill, but nothing about whether or not the motions succeeded or failed?
