Rumors Continue to Fly Around New INDUCE Act (IICA) Draft
According to anonymous reports, our betters continue to develop internet innovation policy behind closed doors. Apparently, the open transparent processes that led to the development of the internet are not appropriate to the development of innovation policy.
Supposedly, the revised bill will be completed by close of business today for markup in the Senate tomorrow. No hearings. No public debate. Nada, nothing, zilch.
Also, if what I've been hearing is true, there is a liklihood of some really terrible additional provisions being added to the basic framework of the INDUCE Act (IICA), such as a requirement for file sharing filtering being built into filesharing applications.
Of course, it would be nice not to have to report on rumors. If our elected representatives had any trust in democratic processes, they would make the various language being batted about and the various draft bills public. They certainly wouldn't require a vow of silence from the participants in the process.
