    Default S.978 and what will it mean for us?

    S.978 states we cant place copyright material on the internet as a video or picture UNLESS we get specific permission from the owner of the property, Would a single statement from Trion or any other product owner stating that all are allowed to show their property through video or picture be sufficient enough for us all to be once again able to post videos or pictures as Trion has told us to make videos and take pictures and then allow us to connect to third party resources to share this.

    If the bill passes what will it mean for us as a community?

    Why are there so many threads derping it up about this bill? We have permission via the license we bought from Trion to play their game. This does not affect us in anyway, unless you're pirating movies and music on the side.

    I'll take the fact that Trion gave us the ability to capture video and upload to YouTube in game as all the permission I need to do so for this game.

    This bill means nothing if you are not breaking the law.

    All it does is add protection to copyrighted materials.

    if there is already laws making everything illegal that this bill would be making illegal, then there is zero reason for this bill..

    The only reason for this bill is to make what were formerly civil suits into criminal acts. Copyright infringement was not previously a criminal act, but the holder of the copyright could persue charges at their own discression. If this bill is passed, it will allow law enforcement to track and shut down illicit sites that stream pirated music and video, and charge the operaters under criminal law, without the copyright holders having to find the sites themselves and waste money on a civil suit.

    Like the person you quoted said, it's further protection for copyrights.
