There is no evidence that anyone is going to jail for embedding a youtube video.
To clarify, No documents have even been released by the courts at this time.
Very few sites/news are covering this story. It seems it originated at "Demandprogress.org"
I haven't found any true sources of where this story even originated from, besides that site, it's just being reposted and people are running with
this idea, with out any factual evidence.
No court papers have been released about the "individual(s)" who are going to jail for "embedding" videos.
They may be going to jail for Number of reasons, none of those to which we know at this time.
He didn't just embed videos or share links to go to prison. Nobody knows what he did.
If there is some sort of bill regarding online videos, no one knows anything about, secondly youtube is a video sharing specific site, so how would
people go to jail for sharing videos?
Hopefully this rumors been debunked before it spreads anymore and the facts of it are out there.
Regarding the bill, putting more people in jail, in an already over crowded prison system for "copyright infringement", is crazy. Hopefully no bills
will be passed that will put people in prison.
I'd like to know more about it, like who's really proposing this bill, the Record Industry? It's understandable people shouldn't "steal", but such a
broad law, will make anyone susceptible to being arrested.
Record labels sell a 20 cent cd with some songs for 20-30 dollars. Is that considered stealing?
The thing about it is, this is really going to effect the little guys. Everyday youtube users, or little old ladies, surfing/sharing there
grandchildrens videos, while large cooperations, and crooked government agencies continue to pillage America, and the rest of the world, and get away
Interested to know how this will turn out.Hopefully they wont seriously put people in jail for 5-10 years, and ruin somebodys life for dling music or
