How does it affect you and me?  It aims to limit the posting of videos demonstrating video games that we enjoy.  Many of the big studios support this bill, because public uploading of early previews might hurt sales if the game doesn’t live up to the hype.  However, *good* studios, smaller studios, and indie game developers *NEED* fans to upload videos, as the publicity greatly helps them reduce advertising costs.  Most indie games, like Minecraft, grow through word of mouth only!
