IT’S ALIVE: New Blacklist Bill Set To Crush The Internet!

REP. ZOE LOFGREN CALLS BILL “THE END OF THE INTERNET”

It’s alive!  And it’s a nightmare.

The rumors were true: The new Blacklist Bill could effectively destroy YouTube, Twitter, and other sites that rely on user-generated content by making the sites’ owners legally responsible for content their users post.

It also includes provisions that would make it a felony to stream unlicensed content — including cover band performances, karaoke videos, video game play-throughs, and more.

It’s a grab-bag of Halloween goodies for a handful of big corporations — but for us it’s Frankenstein’s monster, cobbled together from half-born bills, set to suffocate free speech and innovation and terrorize consumers and Internet users.

Will you use the form at right to ask your Congressmember to oppose the legislation?
