Basically, all the work that you do, all the copyrights on it will be VOID.
Quote, "if Congress passes this law, YOU WILL LOSE THE RIGHT TO MAKE MONEY FROM YOUR OWN CREATIONS! [...] Our government is NOW WORKING AGAINST US by allowing our own citizens TO STEAL OUR CREATIVE WORKS" (Simon, Mark).

I AM SOOO CONFUSED! I listened and read everything, and I don't get WHAT THE HELL it's doing anymore!!! I thought I did--then I got my doubts, and now I'm swimming in a big bowl of "WTF"'s.
