Ok, you're wondering why I haven't talked about the INDUCE Act. The reason's simple: the first replication war is already over. Consumers won; the media industry is shifting business models - albeit at a glacial pace. Even economists are coming around - I've read a couple of very interesting papers lately arguing against copyright and for new kinds of licensing agreements (links to come - I read them in hardcopy!).

So I can't imagine the INDUCE Act will pass. I'd be very surprised if it does - and if it does, I'd buy a ticket to Europe, or better yet, India or China - because it will absolutely finish off what's left of the remnants of the once mighty innovation engine that so many worked so hard to build in theStates.
