Senator Leahy's statement as of March 8

Here is a link to Senator Patrick Leahy's statement on March 8, 2006 when the bill passed the Senate.

It must go into committee. I called the Senate sometime in May and it had not yet been heard in the Judiciary Committee. I am starting to follow this, but so far I cannot find any evidence that it has yet been heard.

Anyone who knows is welcome to comment here on the progress of the bill on committee.

A compromise bill must be reported out and voted on by the House and Senate. According to anecdoctal reports, the Senate bill may have more protections for potential defendants in prospective trademark dilution claims.
