The Induce Act

I really don't think that the Induce Act is that well thought out. If you follow the logic, MP3 players, IPods, Xerox machines, fax machines, and just about any network-aware program, not counting the P2P software that the Act is aimed at. They really need some serious rewording or someone's going to jail for selling a used cable modem.

It should be noteworthy that while Mr. Hatch's 8-page argument for passing the bill talks about P2P and "protecting the children", the actual Bill does not. Various people have taken it upon themselves to rebut Mr. Hatch's arguments.

This one is going to be interesting to watch.
