Submission + - New Bill Makes Copyright INDUCEMENT and Streaming -> 2

An anonymous reader writes: The Protect IP Act's House version came out yesterday and according to Public Knowledge, it is broader and worse than expected. What the Grokster case failed to get support from in the courts, this bill, now also called SOPA and E-PARASITES, has put in — sites can get shut down on the premise that they didn't do enough to deter copyright infringement before it happened. This ends the DMCA safe harbor provision that sites like Youtube and Twitter depend on. This bill also includes the streaming bill S. 978 in it, but reduces the number of required public performances, or views, from 10 to 1 — you just need to share your video that has a song playing in the background to 1 person. The video and a way to stop Congress on the bill is here.
