USA Today reports that if the proposed Inducing Infringement of Copyrights Act in the Senate goes through, it could affect Apple in a significant way, as well as other firms whose business involves digital content. USA Today says that the bill “would make operators of media-swap networks such as Kazaa and Grokster liable for users’ actions. It also would make it easier for entertainment companies to sue tech firms for copyright infringement.” Opponents of the bill are crying foul, saying that “the language is so broad it could apply to makers of MP3 players, such as iPod, and CD and DVD recorders, as well as to media organizations that give consumers tips on using digital content.” [Link credit to Macworld UK]
