I just wrote a article about the convenience of YouTube and niconico. Is this article saying that watching YouTubes and niconicos will be illegal?
Deciding to buy CDs and DVDs by watcing interesting PVs and trailers on YouTube has became sort of a lifestyle to me. There sure is millions of people who do the same as me. So if this is going to be illegal, there gonna be whole lot of criminals out in the world.
Article says that there are people who worries that most of the people is going to be "potentialy criminals". I have no idea how many people use YouTubes and other uploading sites. May be 100 million or so? Are they going to arrest them all? I mean YouTube is not Japanese site in the first place. How is this new law going to deal with the foreign uploading sites? No idea neither.
Reading the article, members of the committee don't seem to understand how the internet works. I don't believe that this new regulation is going to work. Controling uploader sounds realizable, but controling downloader is something quite redicurous. It just seems that the consequence was already there and the committee was there just trying to make it sound plausible, ignoring 7500 of public comments.
have no idea : 見当もつかない committee : 委員会 regulation : 規制 realizable : 実現可能な consequence : 結果 try to make it sound plausible : 辻褄を合わせようとする plausible : もっともな、もっともらしく思わせる
