Submission + - Infringement "Detrimental" to Health & (wired.com)

I Don't Believe in Imaginary Property writes: "The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has declared that copyright infringement 'substantially interferes with the interest of the public in the quality of life and community peace, lawful commerce in the county, property values, and is detrimental to the public health, safety, and welfare of the county's citizens, its businesses and its visitors.' You might laugh, but that means that they can close up a property for up to one year for violations of ordinance 13.90.010 (PDF) and the owner can be fined $1,000 for each infringing work produced on site. Not to mention the penalties in the PRO-IP Act, which just sailed through the House."
