Final INDUCE Act (IICA) Draft From Copyright Interests - INDUCE Dead for Now
It would appear that the Inducing Infringement of Copyrights Act of 2004 is dead. Newsday runs an AP wirestory on the death of INDUCE (Senate Talks Fail on File-Sharing Software). via Copyfight
For the record, according to an anonymous source, this draft version of the INDUCE Act from the copyright industries is the one that finally convinced consumer and technology groups that compromise wouldn't be reached: INDUCE Act - Copyright Owners' Tentative Proposal - 05 Oct 2004 [PDF]
This draft is most similar to the one pointed to by Ed Felton here: Recent Induce Act Draft.
Of course, we should all be wary of the mischief Congress accomplishes during lame duck sessions, as well as a revived INDUCE Act next term.
Might I suggest that the copyright industries spend more time and money developing new business plans rather than legislation-drafting lawyers?
