Ten Strikes Bill — Beat It

I can’t remember if I’ve posted about this yet:  There’s legislation moving through Congress that would make it a felony — punishable by up to 5 years in prison — for Internet users to stream certain content 10 times over 180 days.  It’s vague and crazy and would turn countless Internet users into criminals.  And it’s already made its way through Senate Judiciary.  Our bevy of summer interns at Demand Progress just put together this video on the legislation, mostly a compilation of YouTube user-generated videos that sprang up after our alert about the bill.
