        If you needed further proof of the U.S. software industry's global
        muscle, keep reading. The U.S. government, acting on behalf of
        American firms, has successfully pressured Denmark to change
        its laws. A document unearthed by Cluebot.com describes how the new
        law allows physical searches for supposed copyright infringements
        "without prior notification."
