Hollywood Studios Win Copyright Battle Against VidAngel’s Streaming Service

The studios alleged that what VidAngel was really doing was “space-shifting” and violating exclusive rights to copy and perform copyrighted works. Specifically, the lawsuit took issue with how VidAngel was circumventing the encryption on DVD and Blu-rays that protected against unauthorized access. By doing so, VidAngel was able to not only offer nudity-free versions of movies, but also access to films like Star Wars: The Force Awakens before such content was available on licensed VOD services like Netflix. – Eriq Gardner, The Hollywood Reporter » https://ift.tt/2TnNzTh
