    • Yup! Good catch. Wow, I'll keep my opinions in check, but wow. If this comes anywhere close to passing, it would certainly be notable! 78.26 (talk) 03:42, 7 July 2011 (UTC)

Widespread ignorance and hysteria[edit]

Would it be worth noting in the article that the vast majority of those claiming to be "opposed" to S. 978 apparently do not understand that the law has NOTHING to do with existing types of copyright infringement that are not for "commercial gain or private advantage", i.e., "profit". Uploading for profit (paid for publication or reproduction, including electronic reproduction, without license) has been a criminal offense for many years. The bill would, however, criminalize public performance for profit, whether or not a new copy is made (i.e., streaming is not a "copy" - a defensive loophole). 18 USC s. 2319.

So what happens when a public performance results in unintended financial gain such as being signed on by a recording studio? Is that considered "receipt of anything of value"? (talk) 20:57, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
