So why does Copyright © Law need to be updated? It is Not and Never Was
About Filtering! All of you who believe this let’s say you own your own
business & a rogue outfit gets keys from dark market to encrypt & then
bootlegs your product to make money without a license to do so and is not paying
you? So you don’t think Copyright © Law should be in place to
protect intellectual Property of owners? Support Legal Filtering!
#ThouShallNotSteal is still a commandment
Sad that this has happened. Copyright law is pretty messed up!
It doesn't matter if you "like it". If the company is constantly
seeking ways to circumvent the law, you are complicit in crimes. So much for the
12th article of faith, you know, " We believe in being subject to kings,
presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the
law." That applies to all laws, not just the ones that you like.
Too bad Hollywood pumps out so much filth that this type of service is even
needed. For decades, there weren't even movie ratings because they
weren't needed but as our society's standards have plunged down to
virtually no standards at all, even the ratings aren't all that valid. Very
Learn to lighten up.
There are enough good things to do. No need to watch edited R rated movies. It
always seemed like a middle of the road activity to me to watch vid angel
movies. Either watch the unedited version or do not watch it at all. There are
to many other good activities to do.
I remember when Vid Angel first started, and Matt Meese was in an advertisement.
My children were already grown, and we’ve never watched gory or sexy
movies so I didn’t need it, but seemed like a good tool for families. They should have researched the legality of their methods, ( yeah, that
copying DVD thing) but I still feel bad for them.
Good thing there some alternatives out there now like play it my way, and
Liking a product does not mean it should exist.
I liked VidAngel’s service but it’s pretty clear what they did was
illegal. I hope they can find a way to start again in a legal way.
If not, I’ll survive just fine (and probably better off). I don’t
watch many movies anymore and there’s plenty of content that I don’t
feel the need to filter. And I entirely agree that existing law
needs to be updated to reflect changes in how people watch movies. The family
movie act wasn’t designed for streaming.
I love Vidangel, and support thier fight. Fight on!
Phobia? How did you arrive at an ‘irrational fear’ diagnosis?
Respect for my wife, on date night, watching a comedy, skipping a gratuitous
skin scene—this is not phobia, Doctor. This is common decency.
The only way you will bring about real change to the entertainment industry is
if you stop spending your money on their products. Stop going to their movies or
watching their TV shows. Stop buying their merchandise. Quit going to their
theme parks. Don't support their main companies or their myriad of
subsidiaries. Economics 101 is the only way they will change. Give
the public a product they want.The thing is, if the truth is told,
the vast majority of the public is getting the product it wants. The way the
laws are written, you can't edit, change or repackage the product without
the copyright holders expressed permission. VidAngel is more than likely going
to go down in legal flames due to their business models. Their ideas and intent
may be noble, but in practice, it wasn't within legal boundaries.Good luck to whoever comes up with the next concept along these
line...they'll need it (and maybe a good entertainment lawyer as well).
At some point folks need to get over their phobia of bosoms (they are naturally
occurring), blood (that too is naturally occurring), and bad words (they
can't hurt when not directed at one's self). If not turn the TV off.
In the meantime, the owners will be soon be bankrupt.
