Help Stop the INDUCE Act - If you like your VCR, DVR, MP3 player, CD and DVD burner
I was watching "the Screensavers" on G4 the other night and they were talking about the "Induce Act" which is a bill that seeks to close the door on the Betamax decision by the Supreme Court. A decision that opened the door for VCR's, CD and DVD burners and MP3 players. This should be of special interest to members of this community since most of us use several of these technologies in our projects. In any case it is another piece of bad legislation (like the DMCA) that will be dumped on us because we were silent while the RIAA and MPAA were lobbying.
It is too late for the call in thing that they were doing, but you can still send a fax to your Congressman asking that they take into account your opinion (and vote) before they choose to support this garbage. You can sign up at the link below, after you click "sign up" on the right, it will take you to a page where you can send a fax:
