Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: Downloadable Democracy

According to a recent poll released by PC Data, 56 percent of home Internet users agree with the legal arguments of Napster, the web site that facilitates the sharing of music files. PC Data, a Reston, Virginia-based market research firm, conducted the poll to gauge public opinion regarding the controversial copyright infringement lawsuit that is currently under appeal. The file-sharing technology of Napster has forced Americans to re-evaluate their conceptions of “intellectual property” and scrutinize the often ambiguous notion of “intellectual property rights.”

American Small Business Under Attack by Trial Lawyers

Every day, nearly 60 percent of the American workforce goes to work for a small business. Small businesses produce 40 percent of our nation’s goods and services. We see the fruits of their labor in our corner drug stores, local cleaners and florists. In addition to producing competition and jobs, small business owners provide a tremendous value to our community. Many small business owners sponsor little league teams or provide complimentary goods or services to local charities. Trial Lawyers Attack Small Business

Tax Fact 40: Social Security, Not Personal Accounts, Vulnerable to Economic Downturn

One of the more frequent criticisms of George W. Bush’s plan to allow younger workers to invest a portion of their Social Security taxes in Personal Retirement Accounts is that an economic downturn could wipe out people’s accounts, leaving them with nothing for their retirement. While there is always a risk to investing in the stock market, these critics fail to mention how devastating an economic downturn will be to the current Social Security system – a system that is already heading toward bankruptcy.

LIMITS ON LAWSUITS ARE FOCUS OF RACES

BY Robert Perez

Florida's trial lawyers and the state's business lobby plan to pump millions of dollars into this year's state campaigns, with each side hoping to have a say in what limits the Legislature sets on lawsuits. At stake are reforms the Republican-controlled Legislature passed in 1999 that set limits on product damage awards and reduced liabilities for certain industries, such as car-rental companies. Associated Industries of Florida, a business lobby with 10,000 members, supports the limits. The Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers opposes them.

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: Government stakes its Claim to High-Tech Market

Wednesday, members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) met with Microsoft to kindly explain to the software giant that it is no longer permitted to service the needs of American consumers. From now on, extra-constitutional agreements reached by special interests and un-elected bureaucrats will dictate the direction of the high-tech industry. Critics of the Microsoft antitrust trial have long argued that this would be the outcome of the government’s case and this week’s developments prove that to be true.

Asking God's help

BY Staff and news services

A California delegate on Thursday prayed for God to liberate America from "eight years of captivity with Clinton and Gore." Bill Back, 75, a retired aerospace engineer from Yuba County, made the remark as he gave the invocation at a brunch for the state delegation sponsored by Citizens for a Sound Economy, a pro-business group. Back said that just as the Israelites of the Bible had been slaves in ancient Egypt and won freedom, so too would the United States soon escape the administration of President Clinton and Vice President Al Gore.

Firms Woo Republicans with Meals, Entertainment at Philadelphia Convention

BY Beth Silver

PHILADELPHIA--It's a bit like leading a double life for Washington's delegates at the Republican National Convention this week. There's the official banner-waving, hat-wearing, song-shouting convention that we can all see on TV every night. Then there's the corporate-sponsored food-and-booze fest that takes place off-camera for nearly every breakfast, lunch and dinner the delegates can attend.
