I know this is an American thing, but what do you guys think about this? I have heard this described as, "The death of the internet," but some of it makes sense. I mean they trying to stop people from posting whole movies on streaming sites (which i agree). However, what I don't agree is what they are going to do the gaming community. Its a little complicated (it's politics :doh:) so this is just a poll for you guys. Please leave a comment below explaining your reasons.

I'm not sure how this effects the gaming industry. The only thing I can think of is GameTap (is that even relative?) or onlive. I doubt this bill will go through though. The film business has tried this before and will most likely try it again. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

I didn't see anything on it about gaming. I will say it does violate the First Ammendment, Freedom of Speech, but it wouldn't really effect anyone if it was passed (which it won't be). Same thing with the bill California had going about banning the sale of violent video games to minors- which you actually couldn't do anyway. It had unclear terms and was basically a giant legal loophole designed to get exactly what the people who proposed it wanted, and it would have been to easily abused. It was veto'd, if you don't follow the news.

Bad idea. I'm all for protecting artist's intellectual property, but not through a bill like this. It goes too far.
