Ms. Scafidi Goes to Washington, Part II

So you watched the video and read the written testimony on H.R. 5055, the "Design Piracy Prohibition Act" -- but where, you asked, is the text of the opening statement?  Right here, as delivered to Congress last week.  Enjoy!  (And yes, it contains a few jabs at opponents' testimony -- some more subtle than others.  But if you come to a hearing with a quote from Chanel but no historical context, or with inaccurate statistics, you should expect a bit of polite correction.  For the record.)



FYI, when linking through to the hearings site, you may think the video is defective because the sound doesn't come on until it's 2 minutes into the file.
