MP3 Device Makers Could Be Next...
    #2876070 - 07/10/04 04:36 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

By Jason Lopez, www.newsfactor.com

"Critics say it is a chilling proposal, but if the Inducing Infringement of Copyrights Act, currently in the Senate, were to become law, manufacturers of digital-music devices could be held liable for illegal downloading of music.

Forty-two tech companies, including Google, Yahoo (Nasdaq: YHOO - news), Cnet and Intel (Nasdaq: INTC - news), have signed a letter denouncing the proposed legislation.

The author of the bill, Republican Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah, is requesting hearings on music downloading and who should bear the liability of damages caused by music piracy.

Bi-Partisan Solution

Last year, Hatch suggested that one remedy to the problem would be to develop technology that would destroy the hard drives of offending users remotely. He later backed off his extreme stance when it was discovered that his own computers were powering his Web site with unlicensed software."

Until they hold gun-makers liable for all the deaths incurred by the non-legal use of their firearms, there is no way in hell this should pass.

Sheer idiocy.
Why not ban hard drives and computers while we're at it?

I think this idea is brilliant. This is just what we need to stop everyone from dloading music.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S. Lewis
