Technology Lawmakers Pushing Bill That Could Land YouTube Lip-Synch Artists Behind Bars
Senate Bill 978, a bipartisan measure introduced last month by Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Sen. Christopher Coons (D-Del.), is backed by supporters who say it closes glaring loopholes in current copyright infringement law created by the realities of the digital age.

“As technology rapidly evolves, our laws must be updated to protect creativity and innovation,” said a statement by Cornyn.

But critics say a section of the bill provides for steep penalties -- up to five years in prison -- for “publicly performing” copyrighted material and embedding the video to sites like YouTube. ...

Scott... we should go to Gods word to determine what the punishment should be for stealing. In our relativistic culture most people have come to the conclusion that morality and righteousness are subjective to each individual, but Gods word says otherwise. He is the standard of righteousness in this world for all nations, tribes and people's. Leviticus 6:1-5 says if a person robs someone or defrauds a person he should fully pay back the value of the thing stolen and a fifth extra or in some cases depending on the thing stolen he is required to pay back double Exodus 22:3, and this of course is in the case that no one was physically harmed in the process of the theft. Now imagine for a second Gods law was not the standard of right and wrong, and the government had the power to determine right and wrong and make any law they wanted and it was considered righteous, they could then say things like you should be executed for stealing a piece of gum from the candy store, or any person who spits on the ground is required to pay a million dollar fine or life in prison, or all Jews blacks and Christians should be killed. You see, we can't make up what we think should be the punishment for certain crimes, God already determined that and he is a loving, just and fair God.

No copyrighted work produced in my lifetime will enter the public domain in my lifetime. Copyright is a social contract where we give a limited monopoly to creators who "promote the progress of science and useful arts" in exchange for the benefits of progress eventually enriching the public domain. If nothing created in my lifetime ever benefits me, the social contract for copyright has completely broken down. Why should I respect copyright?

I've slowly come to the opinion that I want the harshest laws and most draconian punishments possible for copyright violation. Maybe when SWAT teams come arrest fathers in dawn raids for alleged copyright violations, leaving the family weeping and wondering what happened, people will start wondering if today's copyright is a good idea. Maybe when a family totals up the amount of money they've spent on copyrighted entertainment over the years, and realize that they've paid more to the corporations who had family members arrested than they can afford to pay a lawyer to defend the family member, will some sanity be restored. Imagine being accused of copyright violations by a prosecutor who used to work for the copyright industry, and trying to defend yourself in front of a judge who used to work for the copyright industry.
