t might in the future, according to one reading of Senate Bill 978, assuming it gets passed. This is a proposed law put before the Senate about a couple months ago, but the games community just sat up and noticed once it read the language and understood the totality of its prohibitions. The proposed law is ostensibly meant to criminalize streaming copyrighted content (an act currently subjected to civil law provisions only). So S.B. 978 defines that behavior as a performance of copyrighted material, and defines a performance as "10 or more public performances by electronic means, during any 180-day period, of 1 or more copyrighted works." Do the imbeciles who wrote this language even use YouTube? Practically every user on the entire service could be covered by that.
