Senate Committee Votes to make Illegal Streaming a Felony

If a Senate Judiciary Committee motion passes a full vote in the Senate, streaming copyrighted material for commercial purposes would become a felony offense. The motion has the support of much of the entertainment industry.

"This isn’t about individuals or families streaming movies at home," said Sen. Klobuchar in an email to Bloomberg. "It’s about criminals streaming thousands of dollars worth of stolen digital content and profiting from it."
