Senator Thom Tillis Sucks for Criminalizing DMCA Violations

Remember SOPA & PIPA from 2012? It’s back, only WORSE.

#stopDMCA is trending on twitter as internet users express outrage over REPUBLICAN Senator Thom Tillis trying to ram through a Felony Streaming Bill Into the must-approve government spending omnibus bill that could potentially put people in Prison over a copyright offense.

Thom Tillis’ bill would make streaming copyrighted music a felony crime, which would translate to jail time in cases where that applies. The potential bill would have a lot of bad implications for the content and gaming world. YouTube would also certainly face new DMCA issues.

The fact that this bill is being snuck into the omnibus relief bill rather than being voted on and decided by both houses of congress is an outrage.

Tillis motive for doing this? News reports indicate Tillis’ campaign and leadership PAC received over $100,000 in donations from PACs affiliated with the Motion Picture Association, Sony Pictures, ASCAP, Universal Music Group, Comcast & NBCUniversal, The Internet and Television Association, Salem Media Group, Warner Music, and others in the entertainment and cable industry to ram this bill through during the third and fourth quarters of 2020.

This is Political Corporate “WHORE-ISM” at its Worst

We’ve been hearing politicians talk about the need for Criminal Justice Reform for years due to having the largest prison population in the entire world.

THE PUNISHMENT SHOULD FIT THE CRIME. DMCA / COPYRIGHT VIOLATIONS DOES NOT

DMCA / Copyright violations SHOULD be a civil matter, NOT criminal.

This is a prime example why we have the largest prison population in the world… people being imprisoned for PETTY, ridiculous infractions, and another reason of why most Millennials will NEVER vote for STINKING Republicans.

It’s also another example of why the United States Government SUCKS due to Republicans… who are Bought & Paid for by the RICH.

Putting as many people in prison as possible and ruining people’s lives is what UN-Democratic FASCISTS love to do.

“Obsession with Crime and Punishment” – Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.

Senator Thom Tillis wants to put people in Prison who makes a DMCA mistake, but refused to vote to remove the most LAWLESS President who ever sat in the Oval Office.
