From the American Library Association (ALA)...
"Three copyright-related bills are currently in play at the start of 2012 – all of which take aim at any website beyond U.S. borders that distribute counterfeit or copyright infringing products. All three bills operate under the assumption that there is a problem that needs to be solved – and the best, or only, way to combat online infringement overseas is with more law targeted at foreign websites. These bills have the potential to negatively impact fundamental library principles. The following chart [link] is for quick reference (not meant to be comprehensive), and outlines the primary issues and concerns of interest to the library community and those who use the Internet."
~Corey Williams, American Library Association.

Are you interested in popular, media-worthy, case information from the Federal Courts of Appeals? Check out this resource from the ABA:
Here's the 9th circuit: http://www2.americanbar.org/SCFJI/Pages/CaseSummaries9thCircuit.aspx
Basically the cases chosen are ones that are more for the public interest- they are expected to be talked about in the news. They are summarized by law professors and law students. It doesn't yet cover all circuits but the majority are there.
