Sonic Zone is already illegal, hosting pirated content, etc.

If this bill pasted Sonic Zone wouldn't be the only thing we'd need to worry about.

The law would be unenforceable. Roughly 80% of YouTube would land in butt-hurt prison.

IF it passes, they would probably go after websites hosting the content, rather than individual users. Eventually the government would pick a fight with a site that could actually punch back COUGHGOOGLECOUGH and the law will probably be overturned.

That, or they WILL go after every LETSPLAYDUDELOL on YouTube. Which would suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck.

Just America. Then again, it's a law about the internet, so who the EFF knows. Legally, America technically owns the internet and can (and has tried before to put THIS into law) in theory turn the whole dang thing off.

So, like I said, who the EFF knows? Let's Players could soon become international fugitives! :D

How the hell can you turn the intenet off? It's not run by any one system. There's a crap load of service providers and servers out there and you can't just "Turn the whole thing off" can you?

I don't know how they'd go about doing it, but there was a bill that was in Congress that would give the President an "internet kill switch." And I doubt they would even propose giving this option to the leader of the country unless they knew it worked. I don't know how it would work, but I really don't think they'd propose such a thing without knowing they could do it.

Then again, I guess it is possible it was drafted by a bunch of old farts that don't know nuthin bout that series o' tubes.<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/R8XSo0etBC4&rel=0" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/R8XSo0etBC4&rel=0</a>

I find it hard to believe that given the internet has no beginning or end, it can be controlled by any one "switch".

I mean, it may be possible if EVERY SINGLE PROVIDER in the world agrees, but you know that ain't happening.
