The "Induce Act"

I've been reading a few articles lately about Congress's Induce Act, and the fact that they would even consider making something like this a law is very frightening. I pray that common sense and understanding of the potential of the technology to be used for legitimate purposes will win out over the recording industry's attempt to have its way by making all sorts or technologies illegal. (we're doomed). I am not involved in the peer to peer file sharing programs that seem to have spawned this bill. I just don't have that kind of bandwidth. This still has me afraid because of its broad reach due to its (most likely intentional) vagueness which would affect all sorts of software and hardware. I wouldn't call myself a remotely political person, but this one has of considering sending my congressman a note. Scary stuff.

seriously, man. Hollywood and Nashville have gone too far. Crush what you fear, fear what you don't understand. In nature, I believe this is called natural selection. Those that can't survive because the ecosystem can no longer support their habits usually die off. Instead, we legislate to keep the dinosaurs alive. Hmmm, I think I'm gonna blog about this myself!
