FULL STORY
Quote:
Techdirt reports that 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.

According to Mark Masnick, 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.


Further examples of politicians trying to regulate things that they don't understand.

I wouldn't worry about it. We rarely have more than 10 people viewing anything. :P

No one really knows how to use the youtube tag anyway.

I think it's just media noise. If copyright protection laws really worked this way, we'd all be in jail already.

That is a very, very odd Bill. large chunk of promotion is driven by youtube and funny thing is the youtube video links to the source creator.

This krby outrage deserves to be in all caps more than the one about the newspaper.
