E-Parasites Act Breaks the Internet, Threatens YouTube, SoundCloud, Tumblr, Puppies and Babies

So the E-Parasites (aka the Protect-IP Act) is a censorship bill designed to allow the government to censor websites at the behest of the entertainment industry.

It criminalizes a lot of web culture that we hold dear — music playing in the background of videos, footage of people dancing, clips of kids playing video games, and videos of people playing cover songs. Seriously, they’re going after puppies and babies here.

Visit FFTF or OpenCongress for more info.

The video above was created by Kirby Ferguson, creator of the Everything Is A Remix series.

Oh yeah, and it happens to be awesome.
