White House: Make copyright infringement by streaming a felony

Piracy and counterfeiting in the online environment are significant concerns for the Administration. They
cause economic harm and threaten the health and safety of American consumers. Foreign-based and
foreign-controlled websites and web services raise particular concerns for U.S. enforcement efforts. We
are aware that members of Congress share our goal of reducing online infringement and are considering
measures to increase law enforcement authority to combat websites that are used to distribute or
provide access to infringing products. We look forward to working with Congress on those efforts and
the recommendations contained in this paper in the coming year.

This is appalling, really appaling. I mean, I'm appalled.

Appalled of London.

(actually, just spoke to Paul and he said it's nothing to do with him)

(Congress is) ... considering
measures to increase law enforcement authority to combat websites that are used to distribute or
provide access to infringing products.


So how does that work if the laws they make are only valid within the USA borders and the websites they are talking about going after aren't?

The same way enforcing spam e-mail and anti-cracking laws work, I would imagine. In other words, not very well. But it's easier than tackling universal broadband or net neutrality. The only people who might oppose it, can't ... they live in other countries.
