To those worried about Bill S.978...

Postby GloryQuestor » Sun Jul 24, 2011 11:54 am

Since we've been seeing a lot of activity and concern for this topic, we looked into the matter and found out through another article that bill S.978 is only for enhancing an existing law, 17 U.S.C 506, which only activates when "infringement was committed ... for purposes of commercial advantage or private financial gain". Because our website is run as a not-for-profit and all video content is certainly not "for purposes of commercial advantage or private financial gain", then there should be no concern over this bill being passed or not.

If anyone else has specific concerns, or finds any evidence to the contrary, please let us know in the Moderator's Drop Box forum.

Thank you.
