More copyright and DRM grimness

Lawrence Lessig comments on the official 'introduction to the public' of the INDUCE Act in America, which would basically criminalise anyone who 'encourages children, teenagers and others to commit illegal or criminal acts of copyright infringement':

The proposal alone is troubling enough. But the outrageous part is that there is talk that this massive new layer of federal regulation of technology will happen without hearings — indeed, that it will be passed in the next weeks.

Ernest Miller has also annotated the introduction line by line over at Corante.
Read and be scared.
