An Open Letter to Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar Regarding SB 978

From Consumer Law & Policy Blog, my latest post, An Open Letter to Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar Regarding SB 978. Here’s a taste:

Dear Ms. Klobuchar:

I’m writing to object to SB 978a bill you are sponsoring that would make it a felony for people to post covers of copyrighted material to sites like YouTube and Facebook.

This bill is targeted at children. It is calculated to stifle creativity and prevent the emergence of new talent. You may not have intended these results, but if your bill becomes law it will turn kids (and many adults) into criminals while doing little to protect copyright holders.
