Recently, Justin Bieber commented, during an interview with a radio station based in Washington, on a bill which would make illegal streaming of copyrighted contents on sites like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter etc. a serious crime, by lashing out at Senator Amy Klobuchar, saying she should be "locked up."
Bieber said while talking with Hot 99.5 host Kane, "Whoever she is, she needs to know that I'm saying she needs to be locked up - put away in cuffs," as reported (opens in new tab) on the blog Gossip On This. Bieber further added, "I just think that's ridiculous."
The bill, introduced by Klobuchar is also known as the "Bieber Bill" or Section 978, the Commercial Felony Streaming Act, provides for punitive measures for illegal streaming of copyrighted contents on various websites.
Bieber's journey to fame and glamour started from YouTube when, couple of years ago, videos of him singing covers of different R&B songs became popular. This clearly explains why Bieber took offense over the bill.
Others including, "Fight the Future", are offended by this bill as well. The group, known for launching the FreeBieber.org website which contains dramatised images of Bieber behind bars with 'Justin faces 5 brutal years in prison' caption.
