    Reading the bill is always a good start

    Setting up a business to profit from streaming someone else’s works is already a federal misdeamor in the U.S. Senator Klobuchar’s bill simply makes streaming huge amounts of copyrighted material for a profit a federal felony. At a time when sites like megavideo are making millions by stealing and streaming thousands of high-quality videos – including 437 of Bieber – raising seriousness of this crime is a necessary deterrent.

    Current law already requires criminal intent - willful infringement of a work – the U.S. Attorney General would certainly not determine this in the case of a tween singing a cover in his bedroom.

    Re: Klobuchar

    so you're proud of Bieber, but not the first woman Senator from MN who served as a County Attorney and went to Yale? I guess that makes sense in your world.
