    This is serious business.
    If the congress approves this, a lot of people might get sentenced to jail for 5 years just by using a song in there video!
    Madness!

    It really doesn't matter if the music is mainstreamed or not, if its not yours - you go to jail.

    You'll only be jailed If you get caught first of all and then only If you can't afford the fine's. This would be just another tax on the people, another revenue stream.

    On another note, this is just a bill, about 88% of bills get turned down.

    Oh boy, this is getting more and more ridiculous, well goodluck throwing 95% of youtube's userbase into prison, what's next? a bill against posting pictures that is not yours? well that'd be funny cause then they'd have to throw about 800 million people into prison.
    No seriously the big corporations are just shooting themself in the foot, that's free advertisment they are trying to make illegal. I find almost all my new music on usermade videos on youtube and I actually buy it. I really want to sign this, but the fact that I could get rid of bieber music...oh boy what a mess.


    EDIT: Now I can't see this one getting passed, but can't we throw bieber into jail anyway? :D

    You should realize that America pushes its intellectual property laws on the rest of the world.

    This bill is all kinds of flawed. I don't agree that anyone should be penalized for using anything that they BOUGHT WITH FUCKING MONEY, provided the use isn't intentionally criminal.
    I don't give two shits about Bieber, but this bill is such a farce.

    Way to go off topic and potentially start a massive flame war. No really, good job.

    Laws are not retroactive people, if a law is made AFTER someone commits a crime said law now enforces, you CANNOT arrest them for it. That website is a hoax/scam just to get emails/signatures/whatever of people that don't know that.
    As much as I hate him, Beiber CANNOT get arrested for this, even if that law goes in effect. Want proove? Should have paid attention in your high school Government classes.

    It is a HOAX, DO NOT SIGN.

    EDIT: It's now in EoF, cool.

    It's quite obvious it's a hoax when it includes the words Bieber and signing a petition online.

    Uh.... no, not for that reason.
    You'd be surprised there's millions and millions of bieber fans.

    EDIT: You relize this was in General Off-Topic not a minute ago, right? Some mod moved it to EoF.

    I think game trailers are considered into this bill as more copyrighted material. It's not you that's supposed to be distributing the game trailers anyway. It's the developer/publisher that's supposed to do that.

    The trailers I put, are trailers for games that the companies themselves ask for people to upload, so there'd be no problem. =3
    Anyway, I don't care about any kind of law regarding the internet...




    And yeah, just having the words save bieber, will immediatly get hordes of fan girls to sign up anything even if it's a hoax. o.O
