    Default Bill S.978

    One of the silliest copyright-related bills I have ever heard of.

    If passed, the bill will make it illegal to stream any content without the permission of the owner including, but not limited to, video games, music concerts, radio broadcasts, movies, and so forth. Anyone caught doing so will either suffer 5 years prison, a $2,500 fine, or both. Plus a nice felony charge on their record.

    It's like the government WANTS to spend needless money taking care of prisoners just to make a few artists happy. Not to mention all the Youtubers who rely on streams for their income being out of work, and the hypocrisy of the whole thing from the government's side. I'm there's probably some better bills pigeonheld somewhere for the feds to spend money on instead of S.978.

    Seriously, government. Stop it with the ridiculousness.
    You just gained back some respect points from me for stopping CA's bill about making violent video games a crime, don't start losing my respect the very next week. D'oh. >_<

    the streaming of video games being illegal will destroy youtube altogether.

    there would only be original content left and vimeo shit.

    it would turn into newgrounds, but way shittier.

    Years ago people realized the DMZ laws where rediculus for the internet, instead of making things better they just made it worse.

    Sharing content will just get easier and easier as technology races on. CDs are already half obsolete. Your government ought to be trying to work with the flow of progress, not against it. :/

    They put as a felony so all the pre-teens and teenagers who decide to record themselves singing karaoke or playing CoD will not have the right to vote or get a respectable job.

    yay? >_>

    Damn it. I rely on walkthroughs and playthroughs to see if a game is actually worth buying. It's like they want me to throw money at them needlessly, just so they can waste it making more shit.

    COICA is even more retarded (S.3804). basically it would allow for the government to block any site they wish, except instead of simply censoring it like china does, it'd be flushed from the internet. prob. won't get voted tho

    If S.3804 is literally that vague then there's no way it'll get passed. The internet would be crippled forever. Perhaps even lose it's value.
