Copyright Infringement of Youtube videos

Fri Jun 03, 2011 12:28 am

Senate bill 978 – a bill to amend the criminal penalty provision for criminal infringement of a copyright, and for other purposes – may be used to prosecute people for embedding YouTube videos.

...if a website embeds a YouTube video that is determined to have infringed on copyright and more than 10 people view it on that website, the owner or others associated with the website could face up to five years in prison.

If this was to pass, from what I have understood, there is nothing wrong with posting a link to the actual YouTube video with no reprecussions. I got this tonight from the political website I am a member of and they say it stands a strong chance of passing. I know there are a number of members here who have YouTube videos embedded in their posts...even as part of their signature. I just thought this was worth sharing with everybody here.

There was an AOL article a while back ago that I had E-mailed a family member. It says the President can shut down the internet, more or less with a snap of his finger. I wouldn't put it past him to do such a thing, just because he can & would be the first to do such a thing (temp or not).

thank you for posting the links, both were interesting, i was reading some of the comments and the people were right half the people on the internet would be put in jail, i know a majority of the music videos i put up have the word EVO in them, meaning that artist has allowed youtube the use of these videos, so i guess we shall see what happens,
