Read the article. The bill actually has NOTHING to do with song covers, and wouldn't effect anyone who puts up song covers (except for financial gain, without any permission.)

They should only send the people who post BAD youtube covers to jail. Or vocal lessons at the least.

Blake, you need to change the title of the thread. After reading the first link it's clear this has nothing to do with youtube covers.
