What a welcome and long-overdue step. If as I presume this means that people will have to provide legal identification in order to upload, then uploads of videos of child sexual exploitation are going to stop pretty damn fast.

Nothing like waving an ID around when committing a federal felony to make somebody think twice.

People will probably be less scared about uploading pirated clips, knowing that’s not a highly prosecutable offense, but still it’s going to help a lot.

This is really good news, thanks for sharing it.
