Big Brother Coming to a Free Wi-Fi Near You?

According to Podcasting News "The U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday approved the SAFE Act, a bill saying that anyone offering a Wi-Fi connection to the public must report illegal images including “obscene” cartoons and drawings–or face fines of up to $300,000."

So let's say you are sharing your Wi-Fi at a conference? Are you going to have to keep track of what everyone at the convention is sending through your laptop? Is the Apple Store going to have to record and screen everything that gets uploaded at all their retail stores? Could this be another way to make money in online video without having to be creative?

"The SAFE Act gives companies a $300,000 incentive to watch and record what you do online, and it raises a lot of questions for anyone that publishes content to the Internet."
