Family friendly streaming service VidAngel found to be in violation of law, ordered to shut down

Long story short, selling the customer a DVD in order to stream them a hacked, altered copy of that DVD via the internet isn’t legal. That should seem obvious, but many companies have tried to find loopholes in copyright law in order to offer new twists on streaming services. The judge ordered VidAngel to post a $250,000 bond and said it must temporarily stop circumventing copyright protections, copying the copyrighted materials from DVDs and Blu-rays and stop streaming or transmitting those works over the web or through apps and media streaming devices like Roku and Apple TV. – Sarah Perez, TechCrunch http://ift.tt/2gwYCBe
