Save BetaMax, flush INDUCE
I have already called my Senators about this, but i figure there is no limit to the amount of feedback these people need. I have signed up for a concentrated calling campaign to the Senate throughout the day on Tuesday, September 14, 2004, and I urge you to as well.
The campaign is to inform our Senate about the dangers of the proposed INDUCE act (S 2560 IS), from the one, the only Orrin Hatch of Utah. Funny how a Republican Senator from Utah would so willingly become a shill for the immoral types out in hollywood. Oh wait, there's money involved. Fuck freedom.
This bill would effectively outlaw (among other things), the iPod, the internet, the television, the radio, the telephone and basically any device that could be used to INDUCE someone to commit copyright infrigement.
It is time that the movie studios and record companies stop looking to Congress to bail them out. If my business goes south, I can't afford a congressment. Hell, I can't afford a city councilman and i live near Chicago, where the papers say they are cheap!
Please sign up to help. Or just call of your own volition. The people at your Senators office are very nice and will listen to whatever you have to say. Find your Senator's contact information.
