Sounds like more butthurt coming from the music industry. Thoughts and ideas are not "property". #.
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?

They want to effectively kill Youtube because it ads to a threat by freedom of speech. It may cause a revolution!
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.

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

What the heck is going on?!?!
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!
