WASHINGTON--Bookmark a hearing on international piracy efforts scheduled for April 29 before the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, State and Judiciary.

The panel will be chaired by Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H). Mitch Bainwol, chairman/CEO of the Recording Industry Assn of America will testify.

No testimony yet, but insiders say Bainwol will praise current efforts, but ask for more help from feds to beef up anti-piracy components in foreign policy at the State Department and the U.S. Trade Representative's office.
