http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill...?bill=s112-978

the USA Government has put up a bill that would, if passed strongly affect us.
since this version is hosted in North America (in the united states),if it passes, it would mean that posting of any material related to the EN version would be a felony, since they so loosely worded it. Mad

more info here:

its still ONLY A BILL, but that dosnt mean it coudnt go either way.

thoughts?

13. Quoting images :
Don't quote posts with images. Please take some time to edit links (or [img] tags) out of the quotes.

17. Image macros :
No posts that consist entirely of image macros, period.

I'd say this belongs more so in the Gaming hotspot than Cosmic break General, so im moving it
Have nice day

Here's a working link to what's in the bill.

Bill Summary wrote:
Makes unauthorized web streaming of copyrighted content a felony with a possible penalty of up to 5 years in prison. Illegal streaming of copyrighted content is defined in the bill as an offense that "consists of 10 or more public performances by electronic means, during any 180-day period, of 1 or more copyrighted works" and has a total economic value, either to the copyright holder or the infringer, of at least $2,500.

The bill won't be much of a problem with Cosmic Break videos so long as CyberStep says it's cool with them. It might be a good idea to bring it up with the GMs now, before Congress makes a final decision on it.

Also, take a look at how much money was spent on the "For" and "Against" camps.
