Justin Bieber: Sponsor of Anti-Piracy Bill Should Be “Locked Up”

Bieber said Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) should be “put away in cuffs” for sponsoring a bill that would make posting copyrighted clips a felony.

In addition Bieber made several comments during the radio appearance regarding the proposed legislation, co-sponsored by Klobuchar, “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.”

And finally, when asked if he is comfortable with people posting videos singing his songs, he replied, “Are you kidding me? I check YouTube all the time and watch people singing my songs. I think it’s awesome.”

Beiber may have just unintentionally gained a large proportion of fans that recently hated the guy.
Well played Beiber

Still not a big fan of his music, but he does have a brain.

I'm not surprised. Justin was discovered by Usher when he was still singing covers at YT. I've never really had any strong opinions about him but he just gained a bit of my respect.

About the bill, this is just Bill S.978 but worse, looks like they just swept that one under the rug and incorporated elements of that bill into the new one. If this bill goes through (it is being rushed through by the US senate, backed by mainly Hollywood and the music industry) I will be extremely dissapoint.

This is why we can't have nice things

Does this law mean that it's illegal to steal music, or illegal to, in this case, put up a youtube cover of you doing a song, and all that stuff?

I don't steal/pirate music but making it a felony seems really dumb.

I've never understood why people dislike bieber so much.
And finally, when asked if he is comfortable with people posting videos singing his songs, he replied, “Are you kidding me? I check YouTube all the time and watch people singing my songs. I think it’s awesome.”

Good on him.

So if I record a Justin Bieber cover, he might watch it?

Come on, that was totally made up. Just another move from his managers to get more fans, or whatever. I've watched a few of his interviews, the boy's less smart than my bathroom's door.
#26
I still don't have any strong opinion on the guy, at least he has a brain though.

I'd like to see some sort of fight, to the death or otherwise, between Justin Bieber and Gene Simmons.

Well said sir.
#29
Good move, but I feel as if it's simply for publicity.

Good for him, however, if he truly believes in what he said.
#30
WOW.

He is the last person I expected to see speak out about this.

Even though he's a little diva, he's earned some respect from me.

He's always had a brain. The kid wanted to pay for college and get rich so instead of continuing his Technical Death metal project, he chose to sing pop songs.

If this bill happened to pass, does it only affect US residents? As well as posting on US websites? (Youtube I assume.)

From the same article:

Last week we covered the Free Bieber campaign that was launched by Fight for the Future in response to the same bill.

Interestingly, although Bieber himself seems to support the cause, his lawyers have sent legal threats to try and shut it down.

Lol, lawyers.

Fuck Mustaine. He's a washed up self-absorbed junkie that hasn't had an original thought in his life. If you took the worst qualities of every musician that had ever lived and rolled them into one, you'd get Mustaine.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

It's weird because, half of the people that have all this hate for him, don't even have a legitimate reason for disliking him.

OT: Good for him
Just a sub-par guitar player..

Well then me dear Justin, why don't you just go over there and lock him up yourself addaboy, go!

Come on guys, Justin Bieber? Nobody even cares regardless of what it's about. I don't care if this guy has a cure for ****in' AIDS, I'll disappear him and give the idea to someone else and not even take any credit for it. The kid is just an embarassment.

Like the person above you said. What's your legitimate reason for not likin' him?

OT: Good for him.

...about the bill.

There's no way this is gonna pass. Someone will take it to the Supreme Court, and they will, undeniably, repeal it, since it is infringing on the First Amendment.
