The Obama administrationâ€™s IP Enforcement Coordinator, Victoria Espinel, has finally released her list of proposals for changes in intellectual property law.
It is therefore proposed that streaming â€“ or other new technological methods serving the same purpose â€“ should be reclassified as the â€œdistribution of copyrighted worksâ€ and, therefore, a felony.
With this upgrading to felony comes some other perks, notably in surveillance. While the FBI and other agencies are able to tap phones, Internet connections and other methods of communication as they investigate the most serious of crimes, copyright infringement is not currently one of them. If Espinel has her way, that will change.
They see me streaming,
Tryna catch me surfing dirty
