I try to stay out of politics, but this is just ridiculous:
The Senate is trying to pass a bill called the INDUCE Act (Inducement of Infringement of Copyright) that is as ridiculous as it sounds: one example of "inducing" infringement could be an iPod, because it encourages the use of P2P networks.
Ernest Miller has a very funny fisking of the act at corante.com. He is also maintaining a
list of devices that could become illegal under the act.
