The article talks about a hearing at the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee about intellectual property (IP), specifically the issue of keeping other from pirating patented items, in June 2008. It notes that attendees of the meeting where disappointed because the hearing did not give importance on the issue of revamping the government's initiative to combat IP piracy. Senator Patrick Leahy, chairman of the committee, stated that there should have no partisan element on the IP piracy issue.
