Induce Act Impact?

A forthcoming bill in the U.S. Senate would, if passed, dramatically
reshape copyright law in the USA by prohibiting file-trading networks and some
consumer electronics devices on the grounds that they could be used for unlawful purposes.

So what is new?

A bill called the Induce Act is scheduled to come before the Senate
sometime next week. If passed, it would make whoever "aids, abets,
induces(or) counsels" copyright violations liable for those violations.
