An Internet Blacklist Bill could well make YOU a felon!!
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) is the lead sponsor of the bill that would make it a felony to post certain streamed content online — meaning ordinary Americans would risk getting locked up for posting karaoke videos, cover band performances, video game play-throughs, and more to YouTube. It’s now been rolled into the House’s version of the Internet Blacklist Bill.
We’re teaming up with Fight for the Future to get this new ad on the air in Minnesota, so Klobuchar’s constituents know what she’s up to.
Here’s where it gets ridiculous: Love him or hate him, Justin Bieber got famous by posting videos of his covers of other artists’ songs on YouTube — meaning he could go to jail if the bill passes. He was asked what he thought about her proposal, and his answer couldn’t have been more dead-on:
“Whoever she is, she needs to know that I’m saying she needs to be locked up – put away in cuffs.” He added, “People need to have the freedom… people need to be able to sing songs. I just think that’s ridiculous.”
