Justin Bieber tries to shut down anti-’illegal streaming bill’ website

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2011/10/27/justin-bieber-tries-to-shut-d...

A website created this week in opposition to a Senate bill now faces legal threats from the lawyers of Canadian pop star Justin Bieber, according to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF).

The parody site, Free Bieber, points out that the Commercial Felony Streaming Act could have landed the teen sensation in jail. Bieber became famous thanks in part to videos he posted on YouTube in which he sang popular copyrighted songs.

The bill was introduced in May by Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), John Cornyn (R-TX) and Christopher Coons (D-DE). The legislation would make infringing a copyright by “publicly performing” the copyrighted work a felony offense punishable by up to five years in jail. MORE>>>

Ironically, had they jailed him, his popularity and records sales would have soared.

 

What really bothers me is that the jackasses are too busy sponsoring a bill on copyright infringement when our economy is so far down the toilet, we could be risking hyperinflation a la the old story about a woman who brought a brought wheelbarrow full of money to the store to buy a single loaf of bread. The door to the bakery was too narrow, so she left the wheelbarrow outside. Well thieves showed up and dumped the money in the street and took off running with the wheelbarrow because it was actually worth something.

 

But these dipshits we pay to run our country are too stupid to see that.....
