Cal-Induce Now a Mandatory Filtering Bill
Ed Felten: "A bill in the California state senate (SB 96), previously dubbed the 'Cal-Induce Act,' has now morphed via amendment into a requirement that copyright and porn filters be included in many network software programs. ...Note...the clever construction of the P2P definition, which requires only that the primary purpose be to connect the user to a network where some other people are offering files to share. It does not seem to require that the primary purpose of the network be to share files, or that the primary purpose of the software be to share files, but only that the software connects the user to a network where some people are sharing files."
