US Justice Department to Boost IP Enforcement Team [reuters.com]
The Obama administration on Monday proposed hiring more prosecutors to pursue intellectual property crimes in the new budget as the entertainment industry pressures the Justice Department to crack down on copyright infringement and counterfeiting.

Given that the Congress is controlled by the Republicans and their distaste for anything Hollywood, coupled with the fact that the entertainment industry is historically pro-Democrat, I see this proposed increase having trouble passing.

Hollywood funds both parties in the US, and the media industry funds politician everywhere, and has superb lobbyists, and a lot of threats (e.g. no British politician dares anger Murdoch).
