    For all those saying "they would never pass a bill like this". This bill is being pushed by people with a lot of money who want internet censorship similar to China. It also has bi-partisan support which gives it a good chance in itself. They can and will pass fucked up shit like this (happens all the time/hello the patriot act), unless the people stand up and speak out against it..

    Send that email, call your congressmen/women whatever you can do because it will not be good if this passes.

    Cool
    well what could happen is that another video sharing site (like youtube) but that is not US might turn into what youtube is today. lets plays will just move to that site instead, thus it won't cause total loss. though hopefully it won't make it that far

    Or all youtube hosted stuff could be moved to a different country?
