You guys are missing one tiny detail. Yes, the Supreme Court can strike the law down if they decide against it. However, it has to be brought to them first. The Supreme Court does not have the power to just randomly strike down laws. What has to happen is that someone has to sue someone else, and that lawsuit has to be appealed all the way up the legal food chain to the Supreme Court, whose decision is then final. However, that process can take several years to complete. If this law is passed, the media companies will have a field day with lawsuits for at a minimum 3 years before the Supreme Court even sees it on the docket. And keep in mind, one of the things that the Supreme Court takes into consideration in its deliberations, even though they’re expressly not supposed to, is the decisions of the lower court judges in reference to the same or similar material. It’s called legal precedent, and it’s become more important than the actual law itself in many cases. No, the INDUCE act cannot be simply written off as something that will get stricken down by the Supreme Court. It is an enormous threat to our way of life here in the US. (And if you don’t think so, try to imagine life without computers, VCRs, DVD’s, TiVo, CD burners, audio cassette recorders, 8-tracks, scanners, cameras (digital or otherwise, video or otherwise,) Xerox machines, video rental stores, credit cards (the card companies will be totally incapable of operation without computers, guys.) Oh, and banks, the New York Stock Exchange, etc. Anything computer dependent will be liable for damages the very second any media company wins any lawsuit against a hard drive manufacturer, which under this law, THEY WILL. This law will do damage to our economy that is simply incalculable. And, I hate to say this to the never-ending crowd of USA - bashers here, but if the American economy sinks, you will find out first-hand about the phenomenon of chaining. On a smaller scale, Enron here in the US was a perfect example. Enron counted among its assets billions of dollars of stock from other companies, which counted Enron stock amongst their assets. When Enron went bankrupt, all those holdings became worthless in an instant, and many other companies went bankrupt as well, as a direct result. The same is true for nations. There are very, very few countries in the world which do NOT have a strong economic relationship with the US. If the US economy collapses, those countries’ economies will at least suffer greatly, and that will affect not only those countries directly, but all the countries which trade with them as well. I’m sure it’s easy for people to gleefully bash the US, when they think it could magically go away without affecting them, but in fact, if ANY major country suffered a complete economic collapse, it would affect the global economy quite drastically. The US counts, guys, sorry. If our economy crashes, you’ll purely hate it.
