Senator Amy Klobuchar wants to censor the net

I received this heads up from Demand Progress and it leaves me with one question: what are they putting in the Washington D.C. drinking water? Anyway here it is:

Crazy and awesome story: Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) is the lead sponsor of the bill that would make it a felony to post certain streamed content online -- meaning ordinary Americans would risk getting locked up for posting karaoke videos, cover band performances, video game play-throughs, and more to YouTube. It's now been rolled into the House's version of the Internet Blacklist Bill.

Love him or hate him, Justin Bieber got famous by posting videos of his covers of other artists' songs on YouTube, so he could go to jail if this legislation passes. He was asked what he thought about her proposal, and his answer couldn't have been more dead-on:

"Whoever she is, she needs to know that I'm saying she needs to be locked up - put away in cuffs." He added, "People need to have the freedom... people need to be able to sing songs. I just think that's ridiculous."

Let's make sure everybody in Minnesota knows that their senator is wasting her time on punitive Internet censorship legislation -- and losing her public spat with the Beebs.
