Do bills like this stop Organized Retail Crime (ORC)? Or is it a way to make it harder for people to do business on online auction or discount websites? Here's one option
Bill would give retailers power to halt online auctionsIf the National Retail Federation NRF has its way, selling goods online will soon become far less anonymous and significantly more onerous for any online auction or discount website. The NRF has announced its support and testified in favor of three bills: H.R. 6713, known as the E-fencing Enforcement Act; H.R. 6491, aka Organized Retail Crime Act of 2008; and S.3434, the "Combating Organized Retail Crime Act of 2008." As the titles suggest, all of these bills are supposedly aimed at fighting organized crime rings, but don't worry—the burdens the NRF would impose upon you are for your own good. No, really—they actually say so.
