Here is Justin Bieber response to this bill:
(nerd) MY LOOK ON THIS AND HOW IT WILL EFFECT EVERYTHING AS WE KNOW IT ON THE INTERNET:
As a Web Hosting provider and along with the rest of the hosting companies out there – THIS BILL MAKES US PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY INFRACTION WHAT SO EVER!!!!!
As a Marketer – this means that using Google Adsense, YouTube, Videos with back ground music, etc – makes us personally liable.
If this bill is passed – it will change the whole game for everyone online.
All websites – will be censored for illegal content, copyright infringement, etc. and if one item is found on any webpage, your whole entire website will considered being an infringement.
YOU COULD STAND TO BE:
JAILED for up to 5 years.
Fined for several thousands of dollars.
Have a Felony added to your record – Say Goodbye to your day job – especially if you have a security type of job & good luck getting any job there after.
This is per infringement.
It’s up to us to fight this. If we don’t they when things change – we wont have anything to complain about – because we have the chance now to stop it.
This bill gets voted on in 4 days.
Take the time today to: WRITE, CALL and/or VISIT YOUR CONGRESSMAN/WOMAN and express your concerns and encourage them to VOTE NO for the BILL H.R.3261
