Anyone else curious why Hollywood is NOT suing ClearPlay, which is also a movie
editing software? That's because @rJohnson nailed it on the head. VidAngel
is illegally ripping DVDs and circumventing encryption technology to stream to
your house in a gimmick sell-buyback program. They will lose the lawsuit. But
their antitrust lawsuit might play out a little better.
I've been using VidAngel since their beta version and I love it! Filtering
out objectionable content is important to me. And the price is fantastic.Regarding, "You can buy it or skip it but you can't steal it.
That's what VidAngel is doing.", that is not true. Every time I buy a
movie to watch on VidAngel, there is literally a physical copy of the DVD in
their vault that corresponds to the VOD movie that I bought. So, there is no
stealing going on.
I've been using ClearPlay for years and have been very happy with their
when hollywood stops selling edited movies to show on airplanes or on network
TV, then I might start to believe their concernsCraig ClarkI
did not know hollywood was responsible for presenting history. I thought they
"...What they didn’t want was for their younger children to learn
racist slurs like the N-word, an epithet hurled at Robinson regularly in
“42,” the 2013 film about his life...."______________________________Back in the days of the production
code in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s, Hollywood whitewashed much of the ugly side of
American history to appease sensibilities to the point of presenting a picture
that misrepresented what happened. Times have sure changed since then.
@Summit"Hollywood is so out of touch with its customers,"Then how do you explain $11 billion in revenues for 2015--a record,
by-the-way?"The world does not revolve around you."Nor does Hollywood revolve around you. It makes what sells. You can buy it or
skip it but you can't steal it. That's what VidAngel is doing.
Hollywood is so out of touch with its customers, and overly controlling. If I
want to mute a section, skip some content, watch only part of the movie, or make
any other skips, jumps, or hops - that is my right to do so in my own privacy.
And I will do it.Get a life Hollywood. The world does not revolve
