Teenage heartthrob, Justin Bieber goes behind bars to send a message for a new campaign “Fight For The Future.” The campaign promotes free-speech and fair-use advocacy.
The campaign alleges that The Biebs could face up to five years in prison due to a proposed new bill that ups the punishment for streaming copyrighted material on the Internet! The Biebs is a web-created superstar who shot to fame on the back of his YouTube videos where he sang R&B songs. He caughtÂ Usherâ€˜s attention, signed to Island Def Jam and is now the biggest teen pop star in the world. However, those R&B songs he was covering online? Um, yeah, that constitutes copyrighted material.
Since Justin got his big break from YouTube singing other artists songs, he could potentially face up to 5 years in prison. Sounds crazy right?! Well, if you love to cover other artists’ songs it could cost you, literally. “Fight For The Future” says, “Tell Congress to get a clue and stop trying to jail people for singing.” The campaign looks like it took place a little while back, hinted by Justin’s infamous hair, which is now chopped off.
Do you think its fair to lock up singers who cover other artists. That’s crazy, how are you supposed to enjoy the music? What do you think?
