Thom Tillis To Jail Twitch Streamers Over DMCA Strikes – Teen Blurb

Senator Thomas Roland Tillis is an American politician serving as the Junior United States Senator for North Carolina. He’s been in that position since 2015 as a Republican. He was elected to the North Carolina House of Reps in 2006 and was the speaker in 2011.


As speaker of the state House of Representatives, Tillis led the Republican effort to block the expansion of Medicaid. He worked to introduce restrictions on abortion, stringent voting requirements, and a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage. In the Senate, he has repeatedly voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

Tillis’ Bill And Its Implication

Tillis’ bill seeks to execute Twitch Streamers who are found guilty of copyright materials shared on social media. His proposal suggests that any streamer or creator who shares a song, album, or unauthorized video clip in a commercial setting should face a felony offense, with a possible prison sentence.

At the moment, nothing has changed. Twitch streamers will still have to avoid DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) strikes. Smaller punishments will be given for now, rather than a jail cell.

Streamers sharing content on social media should be mindful of the bill, however. The situation will be resolved soon, and if it falls against content creators, it could change the DMCA saga all over again.Tillis’ bill will be decided on Dec. 11; congress has confirmed the bill must be passed before the government’s 2020 shut down on that date.
