Submission + - Bill would make streaming movies online a felony (thehill.com) 1

GovTechGuy writes: The Senate Judiciary Committee reported a bill from Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) that would make it a felony to illegally stream movies online. S. 978 would punish 10 or more instances of streaming copyrighted works for commercial purposes over a 180-day period with up to five years in prison. Cracking down on online piracy and illegal streaming has broad support from both parties and the White House.
