Crisis!!

Word is that Congress is looking to pass a new bill for copyright laws, and what this bill states is that ANYONE that streams/posts anything that has been copyrighted can be CRIMINALLY CHARGED with massive fines and in some cases being IMPRISONED.

We can't post copyrighted characters, apparently...

Places like Youtube, DA, IGN and Machinima will be the hardest hit.

Dude, your icon with the word 'Crisis!!' next to it just cracked me the hell up

Also - about ten years ago they tried to stop all fanporn of characters by sending out 'cease and desist' orders.  The problem was so widespread, and the fact that people ignored them caused them to stop.

LAWL really? I didn't think about that XD

And I never knew that...hopefully this may be the case this time as well...

Well, it costs to send out cease and desists, it costs to legally go after someone (especially when there is no profit from their characters), they can't reach people in other countries...

It's the same type of scare tactic the RIAA did with the guys busting into a few peoples homes to try and stop MP3 pirating.

Keep watching what they're doing, but considering how effective this was in the past, I really wouldn't worry about it.

Thank you kindly, sir. I'll be sure to keep updated on this bill-in-progress.

This isn't fucking fair! Now we can't post anything except our own characters!

We just need to hope it doesn't get passed. Right now we're safe.
