Raeg. I just watched LuizPrower's newest video on YouTube and happened to skimmed through the comments a bit. I read something there that disturbed me more than the usual YouTube comments.
Apparently, congress has proposed "Bill S.978", which would make the vast majority of YouTube a felony. Yes, I said "a felony". AMVs, probably other fanmade music videos, Let's Plays, home-made reviews of video games...if it's not something you wrote and filmed yourself, you could recieve up to five years in jail or be fined anywhere between $1,500 to $5,000.
I have 388 videos on my YouTube channel, currently, and the vast majority of them are gaming videos. As I'm sure you can imagine, I am displeased. But here are a couple articles on the subject. Please go ahead and read them as they go more in-depth than I intend to.
