UPDATE: DOJ Reaction To Senate IP Enforcement Bill

The Justice Department didn't get back to me with a comment about the new Senate IP enforcement bill until after the deadline for the print Daily Journal last night.
Here's what spokesman Evan Peterson had to say:
"We are pleased that the Senate continues to share the Department's commitment to protecting intellectual property rights. We are supportive of many of the provisions in The Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights Act of 2008, inluding those that the Department included in our own legislative proposal last year. We do anticipate having revisions to propose. In particular, we are looking closely at provisions similar to those that posed concerns for us in earlier bills, such as the provision that would establish, within the Executive Office of the President, an Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator."
