Senators Want To Put People In Jail For Embedding YouTube Videos
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.

So basically it states that 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

Well...what should we do about this GLP? Taking suggestions on how to protest this garbage.

"Well,

Now the cops can enter your home without a warrant (see: Indiana supreme court, US supreme court)

The cops can report you and a judge and court will give you multiple years in prison for videotaping them while they abuse peoples' civil rights (see Illinois, Michigan)

The CONgress just renewed the 'patriot' act...

And now CONgress wants to imprison people for posting videos on the internet.

Yup. That is logical progression. Makes perfect sense."

This isn't a bad idea at all, but we'd have to find sites they let the public post on. Although I have my masters in Information Security and my CISSP certification, I'm not about to get caught hacking a government site. peace

Well,

Now the cops can enter your home without a warrant (see: Indiana supreme court, US supreme court)

The cops can report you and a judge and court will give you multiple years in prison for videotaping them while they abuse peoples' civil rights (see Illinois, Michigan)

The CONgress just renewed the 'patriot' act...

Oh, and just for fun...

Senators Amy Klobuchar, John Cornyn and Christopher Coons ...

Klobuchar is proud of her 'service' to the 'community' as a state Prosecutor in minnseota's largest county (and is one of the homeliest senators you'll find) and is a Democrat and Yale grad.

Cornyn is proud of his service to his community and state as a district judge, Texas supreme court judge and texas attorney general (the state's ''chief law enforcement officer'' and has been a Republican senator since 2002.

Coon is ... surprise surprise... another lawyer! He failed to 'serve' his community as a prosecutor or judge though, like the other two. He instead worked for 'WL Gore and Ass.' as one of their attorneys and helped 'WL Gore create jobs for the community'. He's a Democrat and new to CONgress.

So when these asshats claim to 'not be certain' if their new proposed law would imprison a guy for downloading a video on youtube, you know they are LIARS. These lawyers always claim, after the fact, to have not known of the 'unintended consequences' of their laws. BS. They are all lawyers.
