RIAA and MPAA Back Legislation to Support Warrentless Searches of DVD Duplication Labs

A post over at Boing! Boing! points to a disturbing article.  Wired is reporting that a California Senate Bill has already passed two committees.  This bill would make it legal for warrentless searches of CD and DVD plants legal.  The MPAA and the RIAA, in true form, are backing this bill.  The RIAA claims that 90 % of counterfeiting is done is such plants and that the sunshine state has 70 such facilities.  This author must note that the RIAA does not have a, shall we say, an undisputed track record regarding mathematics.

The wired article notes that one Senator voted against the bill due to “Constitutional concerns”.  I wonder it that might involve the following?

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

I am not a lawyer, I reckon it helps me sleep better at night but it seems like it is written in very easy to understand English.
