Bad News!!!!!!!!!

Written by Special, sent to you by me. This is all true guys!!

I couldn't believe what I was reading when I saw this..

I have just stumbled upon some HIGHLY shocking news that everyone needs to know about right now!

We all know about copyright infringement and the numerous laws preventing us from using copyrighted material. Some sites and companies take these things very seriously if you do not have permission from said company. But there are sites and companies that's only ask that you give credit where credit is due. Thankfully like DA.

Now, over the past few days I have just been strolling threw the Internet, visiting some of my fave sites to chill on, and every site has been posting the same thing, and if what they are saying is true... Guys, were ALL in trouble!

Word is that Congress is looking to pass a new bill for copyright laws, and what this bill states is that ANYONE that streams/posts anything that has been copyrighted can be CRIMINALLY CHARGED with massive fines and in some cases being IMPRISONED.

This bill can actually cripple companies, and ruin people's lives and may throw societies into chaos!

Big websites such as DeviantART, YouTube, IGN and Machinima will probably be the hardest hit, and I'll just go thru and describe why I chose these 4 and I will also describe the severity of the punishments for this new bill.

I'll start with YouTube.
This site will most likely be THE HARDEST HIT, only because of how much copyrighted material this site contains. If this bill is to be passed this will mean that YouTube will have to remove every single video that contains copyrighted material. This may sound just like the old laws and rules for YouTube but it's just more sever! Let's take Justin Beiber as an example, he was discovered on YouTube with some of his covers of other artists, but because he did not have permission to cover the song, he can now be criminally charged. Same goes for any other musician that covers songs. Not only that, but now any body that reviews clips of something that has been copyrighted can also be found criminally offensive. Ray William Johnson the host of the hit YouTube show =3 and front-man for comedy hip hop group Your Favorite Martian can also be charged for simply reviewing clips from Fox News and wherever else and using references to other things in his music. And this man had made his life off this site and has become the most subscribed channel on YouTube, and now him and Justin Beiber can now be found as criminals.

We can be found criminally for just simply drawing our favorite characters with out permission from Disney or any other animation company. And think of how many fan bases are on this site, and also think of how many artists are on this site. I don't think that there is one artist on DA that hasn't done any form of fan art. And with this law it means that we will now have to remove it all! This will probably destroy the site. Think of how life for all of us will be if we couldn't draw our fav characters. And it's not stealing, I see it as idolizing! and if the bill gets passed (let's use our P and F fan base) we will have to remove all our pics, comics and ocs! No RWOB, Izz-Z Factor, Twist in the Universe, Seer! No Nightmares, Olivia, Danielle, Marie! No anything!

The punishments for this new bill are RIDICULOUS! they include being fined thousands upon thousands of dollars and in some cases even a Max of 5 years in prison! I'm not joking!

All they say, is that they ask us to get permission from the company first. But come on! If I email Disney and ask to use P and F in a drawing do you think they will answer? No, I don't. They far to busy creating master pieces to answer.

Guys, I'm not lying about this! This is serious shit!

I don't want to get you all worried (but that's probably what I did) but we just need to be informed. It may take sometime for this bill to get passed but who knows for sure.

And maybe we can't do anything to fight it, or maybe we can?

I ask you to please spread the word so we can all be informed and maybe rise up and stop this before it's too late!
