You probably remember the online outrage over the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) copyright enforcement proposal. Last week, the Department of Commerce's Internet Policy Task Force released a report on digital copyright policy that endorsed one piece of the controversial proposal: making the streaming of copyrighted works a felony.

This man has been such a deception.

Too much copyright.

Government should be reducing the copyright laws not expanding it. There is too much copyright even without SOPA, now that the major ISPS have implemented their six-strike policy.

They could shorten copyright law to 20 years, abolish the DMCA, legalize piracy, anything to make the copyright laws less bureaucratic. The US should get rid of their IP policies with other countries since it violates their state sovereignty (the US actually dictates policy in other countries when it comes to IP law).
