U.S. to pursue the streaming of copyrighted works

Streaming of copyrighted works will be prosecuted in the United States in the same way that the downloads themselves. This has passed a Senate committee that sets penalties of five years in prison for sites that profit from this kind of offer. The rule will be debated in the full House.

Existing laws in the U.S. punish the reproduction and distribution of works protected by copyright. The law is primarily aimed at P2P file sharing systems.

The new law provides for punishment up to five years in prison and fines on those offered by this system contained more than 10 within three months or exceed the material offered in the market, price or $ 2,500 would be required to pay of a license more than five thousand dollars.
