Submission + - Panama May Soon Pass World's Worst Copyright Law (

hypnosec writes: Panama government is probably just one step away from passing one of the worst copyright laws ever passed and enforced in the history. The Bill no. 510 [PDF], if passed, will empower the Panamanian copyright office to pursue filesharers directly without the intervention of the government and levy fines of up to $100,000 USD each. Worse even, the money recovered will not be going to the rights holders but, will be distributed to officials of the copyright office in form of bonuses. Beyond the fine, those who have been found guilty may also end up facing civil actions.
