OVERALL RHETORIC

Hollywood Has Bought Off Congress

-Details of campaign donations



REASONS WHY INDUCE ACT IS BAD

The bill is too broad

-Could outlaw the ipod

-Links to the fake legal complaints

It stiffles technological innovation

-Who will create a new device if it could be misconstrued to "induce" copyright infringement?

May make bad business sense

-The movie industry attacked the VCR the same way the music industry attacks p2p and then videos became the primary revenue source.

What the heck does 'induce' mean anyway?

-The answer: it is very vague, and that's exactly what Hollywood and the RIAA wants. Dictionary definition. -Creation of a new legal doctrine -This is not what the US has historically done, even for much worse crimes against society (speeding in cars that "tempt" you with high MPH ratings, assault riffles, etc.)

Even if the bill does what it says it does, it is still wrong

-

BETTER SOLUTIONS

(this is where DHB comes in)

There's a Better Solution for FIlesharing"

Let's lay all the solutions out there so that they can't pin us to one bad one. Let's also frame Hollywood as being lazy, frame the congressional solution as being a quick fix to deeper business model woes. Fixing a business model requires much more time (not counting suing people into oblivion) and creativity than calling up your senator.
