    It is the law but it needs to be changed to where it's only covered if someone makes money from it or as is done on Radio for theme songs. Little kids should be left alone.



    Under the new law as I understand it posting this video will be a Violation as well

    I do believe intent should matter for something. That a law exists does not imply or suggest that the law is well-written or effective. Instead of risking million dollar suits and federal jail time for these (often) kids, our legislators should be defining intent w/i existing law.

    I am on some internet/media freedom watchdog email lists and receive all sorts of notifications on bills lobbyists are trying to push. You wouldn't believe some of the things the music and movie industry try to get get put into law. Unfortunately I do not save the emails so you will just have to trust me on it. Some of the more drastic things I remember in recent months are:
    • If you play a radio or TV in the work area and other employees can see or hear the broadcast they want you to purchase a broadcasting license and pay the appropriate fees. So for example a car garage with two mechanics want to play a radio in the back, one has to purchase a license since the other employee may be able to hear it.

    • If you DVR a movie or television show they want to limit it to a 1 time free view. For example if the husband comes home from work at 3 pm and watches a soap opera he recorded during the day and then his wife comes home at 6 pm and wants to watch the recorded soap opera, they want to charge a usage fee on your wife and any other views the recorded program receives.


      And I believe this bill recently passed..

    • The government now has the power to shut down any domain or access to that domain from US citizens that has been reported as having copyrighted material. So for example China has a youtube like website that may broadcast music videos without having a US broadcasters license, the US can shut down our access to that site on US soil.


    I feel our internet as we know it may be forever be changed in the coming years.

    Holy Crap, Dem Soc and I agree.

    I thought the whole nature of Copyright was that they intended to make money from the work? If they are doing it to share the love of the artist through lip synching or parodying (is that a word) arent they really benefitting the artist rather than harming them? Last, no harm is intended, to get into civil litigation its going to be mighty hard to prove malice on the part of people saying how much they love something and doing a tribute to it.

    When it comes to tossing the salad of businesses, the democrats tongues are just as deep as the republicans tongues are.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
