VidAngel Starts Subscription Service to Filter Offensive Video Content
Is this a viable alternative to avoid copyright violations?
In December, a federal judge ordered video filtering service VidAngel to shut down its operations due to alleged copyright violations. Based in Utah, VidAngelís mission is to help faith-based audiences bypass offensive video content including nudity and profanity. While VidAngel appeals that ruling, the Utah-based company has launched a new subscription service to help viewers screen content on streaming services including Netflix, Amazon and HBO through Amazon Channels, reports Variety. Additional services to be added will be Hulu, Apple TV, Vudu, Google Play and Showtime.
