IIPA's Section 301 filing hates open source.

Hit the link but this is crazy, The IIPA's Section 301 filing basically
states that open source is WORSE than piracy.

The reasoning is:

*It encourages a mindset that does not give due consideration to the value
to intellectual creations. As such, it fails to build respect for
intellectual property rights...*

Apparently Open Source does not have any intellectual property rights
(copyright) attached to it, even tho GPL licensing has been repeatedly held
up in court.
