In essence, the main idea of said legislation is this - Anyone who creates technology that could potentially be used to break the law can be sued.
A simple, elegant solution that to my mind is right up there with the invention of the wheel.
Under potentially illegal under the Induce Act:
Things that play things.
- iPods (illegal music)
- Pianos (for mangling every piece Beethoven's ever written)
- Just gagging to be sued: Apple, Yamaha
Things that record or store things.
- CD Burners (for making copies of music and movies you were too cheap to buy)
- Ziplock bags (keeping your gloves after killing your housemate)
- Pen (for writing mean things like "It's over Trish. It's the little things that got to me. Like your tits.")
- Paper (for aiding and abetting aforementioned mean scrawlings to Trish)
- The alphabet (Trish again)
- Ink (poor fucking Trish)
- Your brain (Dirty thoughts. And porn.)
- Up for some serious jailtime: The poor sods who came up with the alphabet, the first pen, the Indians for ink. And God for giving you a brain.
Things that you can move at high speed at other things.
- Cars (into people - no matter how much the deserve it)
- Planes (into buildings)
- The Wheel (into people, wildlife)
- Hands (slaps, punches, ass-grabbing/smacking)
- Knees (particularly swift ones to the nuts)
- The firing squad it is for: Henry Ford, Boeing, The Almighty, women's self-defense groups, your ISP.
Ironically not under threat of lawsuits:
- Big Tobacco (Think about it. They get you hooked and kill you because you're using them exactly the way they intended. No harm, no foul)
- Cocaine dealers (ditto)
- Gun manufacturers (Firearms are made to deter people. Death is a kind of deterrence)
Don't you just love this world?
