 SOPA is back. Well, one of the harshest and most ridiculous parts of it,
anyway. The Obama Administration wants to make unauthorized streaming a
felony -- with years of jail time.

If this passes, sharing a video of yourself singing karaoke could land you
in prison. Singing “Happy Birthday” with your family and videotaping it
would be a felony. Click here to say NO to SOPA

This latest push to crack down on everyday internet activity comes from the
Commerce Department’s Internet Policy Task Force1. They want to make it so
that any streaming or sharing of copyrighted content could be punishable by
years in jail. Just imagine. If these recommendations become law, kids
could be locked up for singing pop songs on Youtube.

Tell Obama: No SOPA-style censorship.

The prospect of teenagers going to jail for uploading their bands’ cover
songs is terrifying, but the good news is that Congress is still pretty
shaken up from the SOPA strike last year 2. We’ve got a good chance of
stopping this toxic legislation before it gets anywhere, but we need to let
everyone know, right now.  So far the mainstream media hasn’t paid much
attention to this, and there’s a danger that this censorship bill could fly
under the radar and pass if we don’t act now.

Tell your friends like you did last year. It’s time for the web to freak
out again to defend itself.

Even better, forward this email to 10 people, or to any email lists that
you’re on. We can’t waste any time in getting the word out. We fought tooth
and nail last year to keep the internet free from SOPA-style censorship, we
can’t let this bill sneak through and kill the open web.

People shouldn’t go to prison for sharing a video. Click here to fight

We’re counting on you,
