I was kindof thinking that same thing. It doesn't make any sense to go after users.

There are far more slaves to be made by prosecuting users rather than distributors.

I'm sorry but wouldn't Youtube be the first ones they target? They offer the embed feature to begin with, if they didn't want their videos to be spread there wouldn't be a giant SHARE button under them.

Yet, all of these advertising agencies, television shows and news outlets can freely usurp "citizen" YouTube videos, either distributing the original material or copying it. Do these people get any sort of compensation or have these companies just found another way to cut their spending and avoid having to come up with original stuff?

Actually some thoughts and ideas can be considered intellectual property.

Though, since it is youtube and a free website, the videos embedded do not create money, so there really shouldn't be a regulatory law on it.

If they wanted to make a big deal out of it, it really doesn't have any standing in court because the senator/corporate U.S. doesn't own google/youtube or the videos being embedded, so it has no authority.

The worst part about it is they want to make it a felony. At best it should be nothing more than a civil judgement.

I think people who embed UFO videos that aren't obviously UFOs should be jailed.

Best way to do it is to scare and fine people about sharing, as a start anyway because you're already watched by what you post.


ahh, but we know that facebook ect. are gonna do fine.

good little minions. tools for anarchy.


After all, ITS ARAB SPRING!


and now we're entering the Summer of Rage!


both brought to you by the NWO!

Maybe these senators need outing and then maybe a visit to let them know who pays their wages to fund their luxury life styles while America lives on scraps and those scraps are stuff with GMO crap they also agree for more bungs.

World has gone mad

If you embed something you have not copied it or anything. You have just opened a window to where it is...

IMO this isn't about money really, it's about silencing critics of the government, and silencing the alternative community.

They have really upped the attack on the alternative community this last few months.

Unpleasant though it is, it shows how strong we've become and therefore how much of a threat it has become to the NWO murderers.

We're getting in their way, seriously.

It has often been said, and my impression is that it is true, that they have to shelve their demonic plans once it has been exposed in the media. We know the MSM don't expose their plans, so this is a direct target to silence the citizen journailsts.

So that means we're doing good. We need to keep on keeping on - and even redouble our efforts, because for sure we are getting in their way. YEY!

They want to put YouTube posters in jail, and We The People want to put the Senators in jail.

I say, lets have both then shall we ?

Its better in the long run, trust me. The you tube posters are gunna have to suck up some jail time in order for us to refill the slurpee machine.

sorry, but political cleansing must be done. and there will always be collateral damage.

Whatcha say America?

Going after users is the easiest thing to do, don't you know? They always go after users (of gas, food, alcohol, tobacco, bailouts) rather than going after the all-important corporations. But it makes total sense because the corporations are the ones who own these senators' asses. QED.

A lot of these Senators are old and have no idea how this technology works.
The Lobby groups therefore find it very easy to bamboozle them with industry speak and techno babble.

There should be a law that a Senator can't vote on any bill or law that he is totally clueless and in the dark about.
That would stop this kind of rot in it's tracks.
I often wonder what politicians do all day. If they can't even take the time to research what they are voting on.
It should be part of their job description.

From now on if they ever try to do something we dont agree with with. everyone who doesnt agree should just do it. Let them try bang millions of people in jail and see how far they get. Maybe its time we put all them in jail just for been complete idiots. The world is gonna end up like idiocracy with them old farts in charge.

What the heck is going on?!?!

Infringement? Really?!

There is an option to not be able to embed the video...so what is their problem.

Also if you post on youtube isn't the point to share those videos? if you dont want people viewing or sharing then dont upload to youtube!


All this copyright stuff seems like greed to me.
When someone posts on youtube, it is known that that video is going to be viewed and or shared!


It's not greed it's simple economics. Fact is the material is already protected, yet people still infringe on the rights of artists to get something for free. Music and TV, Movies and Documentaries are all a business that wants to make money via advertising and selling DVD/CD's.
When you remove their ability to make sales, you are surprised they fight back?

People blatantly break the laws when they pass around music thats protects, or movies and the like. No real punishment is available so the laws continue to get broken while the people who want to make a living off their art are stuck getting next to nothing for it.

Should we starve the artists then, remove their ability to make money? I am not talking about big corporations either as they can make money using other means, instead of using artists.

you're rather confused. We are talking about embedding youtube videos? Typically if people want a song, they download the MP3, not a video of it. And artist's barely make a decent % off CD sales. most of their money comes from touring. Just because someone downloads some music doesn't necessarily mean they would have bought it.
