Stop SOPA PIPA Censorship! Free Justin Bieber!!

We’ve posted about the SOPA ‘censorship’ bill before. If the bill passes, “streaming or otherwise using copyrighted music in an online video punishable by up to five years in prison.” That means all the YouTube videos Justin posted of himself singing music by other artists before he became famous would be illegal and he could be tried and sent to prison for 5 years!

Justin is an example of someone who could go to jail for singing cover songs to get famous on Youtube. Yes, Congress is out of touch.

The bill is up for vote on January 24th and while it’s important to protect copyright, it’s even more important to protect free speech and prevent censorship! Learn more about this important issue: Wikipedia, Google, FreeBieber.org

  1. Um pretty sure you can’t be charged for something that wasn’t a crime at the time you did it…. so Justin would not be tried or sent to prison

  2. Singing cover songs and upload them to youtube is not concerned by the bill,
    The fine exemple of this bill are the videos uploaded on youtube contening images( copyrighted or not) where original music is added on…

  3. that would be so stupid…. justin biber is way better then some of the singers that actullaly sing those songs…… they need to leave him the hack alone…. haters stop haten

  4. omb if he goes to jail im gonna cry FOR 5 YEARS OMG we can’t let that happen lets make each of us a support video I am I WE CANT LET THEM TAKE HIM TO JAIL!!!!!! this means the whole celebrity/world is going to jail because a lot of them posted covers before they become famous so HE just cant omg (im at school right now)) i dont wanna cry right now!!!!!

  6. OH they better not put him in jail he is canadian he posted them in canada plus everyone does cover songs on youtube congress I hate you and if you put justin in jail i will kill you all

  7. I don’t think Justin will go to jail caus of him being in Canada when he posted them and the law wasnt around then. Anway Justin has all of us Beliebers his Belieber family and we LOVE him and will stick by him I LOVE YOU JUSTIN!!!! XXX <3<3<3

  8. I don’t think they realise what they might be doing putting THE JUSTIN BIEBER in jail for 5 YEARS they will get LOADS of hate off Beliebers

  9. Y’all need to calm down man…I the passes it won’t go back to who did it before just who does it or now on…calm yourself and try reading up on te situation before you start freaken out there…btw this was not meant to be mean I love y’all…exept for nonya an a fun girl named Brenda :P

  10. This can’t happen… y is everyone always behind justin? so not fair…. and anyways he is Canadian and there are many other people who does cover so before justin the should go to jail and even if he goes to jail for 5 years i will cry for five years :(

  11. I heard about this from a really smart guy in my class. This is serious….This could change the internet forever!!

    I would be soo sad if JB had to go to jail!!

  12. I KNOW THE LADY THAT DID THIS IS PUTTIN UP THIS LAW I CANT REMMEMBER HER NAME BUT I HOPE THEY SHOOT HER THIS IS NOT SOMTHIN BAD 2 DO I MEAN CMONE DOING COVERS

  13. That would be just plain stupid to pass that law, You would have so many people in jail for that, Greyson Chance, Cody Simpson, Christin Grimmie, Justin Bieberr and so many more!

    • I know! And some people want that stuff up so that they can “advertize” and stuff!! My SEVENTH GRADE class had a whole argument on it today!
      If they pass it they are stupid

  14. hahh? that’s confusing., why would you go to jail that just the reason that a singer cover a song by another artist, justin dont deserve that and its unfair if justin would go to jail, all artist will go together with justin bcoz i think almost of singer are making a cover by others! and its hard for me if justin will go to jail for 5 years .,. my brother told me when he saw this news, the one who reported are just making money.,.

  15. No that better not happen, I’m already sick of seeing “SOPA” and “PIPA” all over the internet, I actually think this is a US only law, If it is then us other Beliebers can relax and so can Justin!

  16. Justin better not go to jail, if he did I would CRY FOREVER even if he was out of jail I would still CRY cause he was in jail. Also, the Internet would never be the same without Justin’s First Video’s that made him FAMOUS. PLEASE DON’T PUT JUSTIN IN JAIL. LIKE MY NAME SAYS HE IS MY COMMON DENOMINATOR AND MY LIFE WE WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO SEE HIS FACE IF HE WAS BEHIND A JAIL SELL!!! PPPPPLLLLLEEEEEAAAAASSSSSEEEEE DON’T PUT HIM IN JAIL:(

  17. Wat the US dosent understand that one he cant go to Jail cause he no his MOM posted those videos so that ppl can see how Good he was at singing. NoBODY expected that Justin would get súper MegA famous that way and also if they do put him in Jail which i Hope they Dont the US dosent realize how Many girls WORLDWIDE are going to be sad and protest for his freedom!

  20. We shouldn’t just do this for Justin….this bill could affect us too!! No more videos for us! Whether he goes to jail or not we should all sign the petition on google. It’s also not just about being able to post videos…the government has been trying to take away our freedom of speech including occupy wall street situation!!! Let’s all stand up for what we believe in!!!!
