Congress: The Streaming Of Copyrighted Content A Felony?

Word on the street and information highway says that Congress is thinking of making copyrighted material illegal to stream. For more info check out this website: http://act.demandprogress.org/sign/ten_strikes/?source=fb

Apparently there is a debate about a 10 strikes law that Congress is considering. Any streaming material that is copyrighted is the target, which would make  nearly every video on youtube pretty much illegal from what I understand. Everything form background music in videos to videos where your friends are singing a great Top 40 song could be considered a felony to share on the internet.  I’ve not had much time to research this particular piece of information, but you are welcome to let me know what you’ve found out and what you think of this whole ordeal.
