Induce Act = Farm Subsidies
Tim Wu has yet another excellent post over at the Lessig Blog, this time on the "Loser's Paradox" -- e.g., the affinity the U.S. government has for ailing business sectors.
"[T]here's not much a conceptual difference between something like the Induce Act on the one hand, and the farm subsidies for corn on the other," writes Wu. "Each case features an industry that desparately wants to slow the arrival of more competitive rivals. And each are in truth, slowly dying industries whose ongoing decay poisons our economy."
Equally excellent and apropos: Wu's Digital Audio and the Copyright Gap and Copyfight co-author Ernie Miller's Senators Put Copyright Office in Charge of Finding INDUCE Act (IICA) 'Consensus' by Sep 7. Don't miss them.
