The Future of Couch Tour?

Via cnet:

In a recent discussion, the White House is proposing “illegal streaming” be made a federal felony.

Here is one of the highlights from this new 20 page proposal:

• The White House is concerned that “illegal streaming of content” may not be covered by criminal law, saying “questions have arisen about whether streaming constitutes the distribution of copyrighted works.” To resolve that ambiguity, it wants a new law to “clarify that infringement by streaming, or by means of other similar new technology, is a felony in appropriate circumstances.”
