Quote:"Okay, this is just getting ridiculous. A few weeks back, we noted that Senators Amy Klobuchar, John Cornyn and Christopher Coons had proposed a new bill that was designed to make "streaming" infringing material a felony. At the time, the actual text of the bill wasn't available, but we assumed, naturally, that it would just extend "public performance" rights to section 506a of the Copyright Act.

Supporters of this bill claim that all it's really doing is harmonizing US copyright law's civil and criminal sections. After all, the rights afforded under copyright law in civil cases cover a list of rights: reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works or perform the work. The rules for criminal infringement only cover reproducing and distributing -- but not performing. So, supporters claim, all this does is "harmonize" copyright law and bring the criminal side into line with the civil side by adding "performance rights" to the list of things."

"If you embed a YouTube video that turns out to be infringing, and more than 10 people view it because of your link... you could be facing five years in jail."

What about youtube to begin with? gaah.gif Too big to fail? They must stop embedding, or its them who are criminals.

The problem is the people who own the media are the same ones buying these ridiculous laws. How much airtime are they going to give you to argue against something they've spent a lot of time and money lobbying for? At best some liberal media might pick this up and then get shouted down as commies. Even if you could get your point across, the second it became clear you knew what you were talking about, they'd drop the charges and claim that as proof the system works - there are plenty of people who don't understand the issues that they can go after instead.

Just the fact that it's felony, it means one basically loses what remains of civil rights (whatever that may be, considering the government has a secret definition of the patriot act it will not disclose read it here) . You can't vote, or even pretend to vote like we did in the Bush election.

Chances of finding future work will be more difficult, with convicted felon on your record, but the same people turning us into felons by these ğkking stupid laws are the same ones who gave our money and future to the banks and shipped jobs overseas.

Noby's getting a bit sick of this shït huh? Take action like always, turn on the TV, Pass the fluoridated water and msg laden Doritos, and make them evil lawmakers go away. 13.gif

The best solution for the interest groups involved would perhaps be to declare all of the US a jail (with some islands for the privileged).

This would be a rather elegant way to get rid of the 'constitution' 'legally'.

I agree the actors are way over paid so studios try to get politicians to pass laws so that they can fine people for downloading a movie online for free, an idea would be for studios to start making decent films and not the trash they're putting out , how many remakes can the public put up with?gaah.gif hollywood ran out of ideas years ago13.gif13.gif , paying an actor 20 mill to do a movie and then charging the public high fees to watch garbage won't fly forevercoffeetime.gif this is why I refuse to go to any movie theaters and support these wankers cheers.gif watch movies online instead and vtv blows too way to many commercials gaah.gif for evey 30 minute program there is 14 minutes of commercialsgaah.gif and i don't need a pop up telling me what I'm watching I gaah.gifknow exactly what I'm watching ,channels I refuse to watch are cw and tbs far to many pop ups

this concludes todays rantcheers.gif
