Advocacy Group to Music Fans: Free Justin Bieber!

by at . Comments

Attention, Beliebers: Justin Bieber, and free speech advocates everywhere, need your help.

The 17-year old star is at the center of a campaign - aptly titled Free Justin Bieber - initiated by Fight for the Future, a fair-use advocacy group that's urging citizens to vote against congressional law S.978.

What the heck is congressional law S.978?

Justin Bieber in Jail

It's a rule that would make it illegal for individuals to stream/use copyrighted music in an online video. And where does Bieber come into this debate?

He was discovered by Usher via a homemade YouTube video of himself covering a handful of R&B hits. If this law is passed, such an act might result in a prison stint. Instead of a record deal.

"Tell Congress to get a clue and stop trying to jail people for singing," the organization says in a statement, asking folks to sign its online petition. "Congress has no business making ordinary Internet users criminals for expressing themselves online."

Seriously. Under this law, five-year old Sophia Grace Brownlee would be a criminal.

LOL I know right.... some people don't know what a JOKE is. The picture is just a joke it's for laughs. The pic is just showing that if this stupid law had existed while justin was getting discovered on YouTube that he woulda broken the law, thus going to jail. Where in the article does it say Justin Bieber Is In Jail??? LOL just imagine Breaking News: Justin Bieber Now Officially Behind Bars!!! To the people who are saying this is so obviously fake, photoshoped etc...omg no offense but y'all need to grow a sense of humor.
