As Washington Post reports, Literature Vice President T. J. Wehlim has suggested to attach invisible GPS transmitters to every book copy of the US book market. By this procedure, Russian and Chinese book gangs operating in USA could be fought more effectively. Wehlim estimated the yearly publisher losses caused by the Russian and Chinese book mafia by $2 billion dollars. With  GPS transmitters, special FBI units could track robbed books precisely and liquidate book criminals directly. President Obama stated he is not entirely convinced about the effectiveness of this procedure but nevertheless would sign the respective bill.
