    Okay... now this is not good. Hopefully it gets shot down, as the article proposed.

    Things like Hulu, etc. would get destroyed by this shitty idea.

    Good
    I've never liked streaming video and anyone who watches it should go to jail for life.

    Don't act dumb. People being able to propose bills like this is a part of the freedom of America. Nothing will ever come of it, except for sensationalist news articles like this crap.

    If something did happen though I'll be laughing at all the people raging. :p

    First of all what is with the Texas lol tag? How does Texas fit into this seriously?

    More importantly...

    Seems like a massive overreaction to me. Though the wording could use tightened up IMO.

    The bills is a proposed amendment to copyright law, which Hulu abides with by negotiating rights for the content they stream. The only "business" providing streaming content that would get destroyed are the ones already breaking the existing law. This proposal is A) just a(nother) redundant waste of taxes. B) a(nother) rewrite to adopt restrictions into law on the use of newer technologies by consumers.

    Come at me CIA.

    Jim Sterling (the guy who wrote the article) is an idiot by the way.

    Me: My legitimate game box collection says otherwise, dummy.

    Yup. I bought 30 boxed games two months ago. Got to love it when you get two paychecks at once.

    Barely played any of them. Got sucked into Wipeout HD instead.
