Confirming my suspicions about its involvement, here’s an AP story reporting that Beaverton, OR-based Digimarc spent $350,000 lobbying for the REAL ID Act. Direct lobbying is only a small part of the PR and outreach efforts that go into a public policy effort.
Previously, I noted that Digimarc lost money in 2007. A wounded animal is the most dangerous. I think that may apply to this corporation, which is now clearly a direct enemy of Americans’ freedom.
