Hmm, Oregon was one of the few US states that I thought it might be alright to live in...
To be sure, this is something of a concern, but a lot of very silly bills don't get passed -- a number even dwarfing the large number of silly bills that do get passed.Since basically anyone can propose a bill, and the article didn't say this was passed by the senate and was on the way to the house, I wouldn't be to quick to judge the whole state.
Does the unlawful labelling have to be done in Oregon? 'cause otherwise, I look forward to them bringing down the RIAA for trying to frustrate P2P file swappers by distributing misnamed chaff.
Alex Jones has been carrying on about this for months, particularly the bit which (apparently) leads to being sent to a Chinese labour camp for 25 years.
This article is total BS. The purpose of the bill is to add terrorism to already existing list of crimes such as the mentioned.
