I'm traveling out of town this weekend, so we're doing this week's look at the Reel Web a bit differently: we're doing it vlog style! I quickly look at a couple stories that stand out to me and share them with you guys in a slightly different format than normal. What do you think of it? Let me know in the comments below!
Is Bill S.978 The End Of Fair Use On YouTube?
Our main story covers the potential end of Fair Use on YouTube. Bill S.978 will make it a felony to stream any kind of copyrighted material, especially music or audio. That means you could go to jail even if you post a little video of you in a restaurant while there's a copyrighted song playing in the background.
QUESTION: Do you think Bill S.978 will pass?
