I like MUB, but FBOR is unescciary & possibly harmful to the entertainment industry 0 0.0% [ 0 ]
Both of those laws sound good on the surface, but would be a disaster! 0.6 60.0% [ 3 ]
I'd pass both of those laws in a heartbeat! Please go into politics! 0.2 20.0% [ 1 ]

What sort of bill would you create & try to get passed as a law if you were a politician & could make up any type of bill or law you wanted? How would you describe your bill/law? & What reasons would you create it for & why?

I have a couple ideas... if I ever got into politics and had the power to propose whatever I wanted to make a bill or law about, I'd create at least 2:

1: The Fan's Bill of Rights or "FBOR" Which would officially declare "fan-works" legal. Under FBOR the unrestricted reproduction of copyrighted art, literature and media in non-profit works that pay tribute, homage, or parody to the work for the sake of entertainment without consent required from the original content holders. In other words fan-art pieces, fan-comics, fan-fiction writing, and and music videos.

&

2: The MegaUpload Bill or "MUB" Which would make it illegal for the government to shut down any file sharing site without 1st obtaining a list of the sites users and sending out a mass e-mail to all members of the site who have used it to store or host files and providing them 2 weeks notice (with additional reminders on the 1st & last days of the 2nd week) to remove and back-up their files. This law would allow anyone who was innocently using a site to store data for work or school to remove it.

Also, these bills would be connected to each other in the fine print & would also contain a clause that would make it illegal for the government to conduct "warrant-less spying" on websites or internet users without clear reason for suspicion.

I'd create these to uphold our 1st amendment rights keep the internet a safe-haven of entertainment & free expression for all fan-boys & fan-girls!

PS

Do you think these bills would have a chance in Washington DC? Why or why not?

The first one should already be considered under fair use. The second one makes little sense, because I don't think the government should be in the business of shutting down file-sharing sites to begin with.

Well it should, but youtube removes a lot of videos unfairly despite that they should be considered fair use.

The 2nd one, well I gotta agree with you there... cuz I don't feel the government should be allowed to shut down file sharing sites, but if for some reason they have to, they should be required to give people notice so they can save their files.

These are basically to protect people from being effected by any of the SOPA/PIPA/ACTA/CISPA type laws that they keep trying to propose so that they won't be hurt by them.

That'd be good, especially for movies like that one they just released about "bullying" They could have a censored version that they could take younger kids to that would let get them get the gist of how bad bullying was without hearing all the strong language from the original, & an uncensored version with all the bad words in it for those who really want the full impact. It would also be good for anime shows. One Piece was a really crappy anime dub mostly because of heavy editing by 4Kids, but an uncut DVD release would be nice.

Me neither, I was just saying that cuz the way you talk it sounds like your drunk or high... I didn't know they closed parks at night. Do they have security guys walking around there to make sure no one goes in? My guess is they don't want people to go to the park at night cuz someone might get mugged or raped or something & they probably don't want homeless people to be sleeping in the park.

That is true, but it might be easier for muggers & rapists to hide in a park where there's trees & bushes & maybe not as good of lighting as in the city.
