Group Wants to Induce Downloads A coalition of tech groups and free-speech advocates launched a project Tuesday to distribute video and audio of recent Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on the Induce Act -- using the very peer-to-peer networks the bill seeks to outlaw.

Organizers of P2P Congress said they wanted to prove that peer-to-peer file-sharing technology can be used for a broad range of non-infringing purposes, and they hope the online experiment will help kill the Induce Act, a bill also known as the Inducing Infringement of Copyrights Act (SB2560).
