What the Fox Proposes for the Henhouse
We'll likely have some more here @ Copyfight on the Copyright Office's "consensus" draft of the misguided Induce Act, but in the meantime we have a choice quote from Will Rodger (culled from Declan McCullagh's updated CNET piece):
"First it was the Hollings bill, then Induce, now the Copyright Office's bill. They look different, but they all revolve around the same thing: Giving content (providers) veto power over all new technology. Who decided that holders of government-granted monopolies should determine the future of high tech? I don't remember reading that memo."
