VidAngel Ordered to Pay $62 Million to Hollywood for Editing Violent and Sexual Content

Censorship for the purposes of protecting the innocent is not allowed in post-Christian America.

A Los Angeles jury is ordering the editing company VidAngel to pay an incredible $62.4 million in damages to Hollywood studios for censoring objectionable content on its streaming service.

A federal judge ruled in March that VidAngel violated copyright laws for allowing its users to skip the violence, sexuality and profanity that is found in abundance in Hollywood productions, and the jury is making the company pay as a result.

VidAngel CEO Neal Harmon plans to appeal the ruling, and hopes to keep his company alive. They filed bankruptcy in 2017 because of the costs incurred from dealing with this legal battle with the Hollywood giants.

“We disagree with today’s ruling and have not lessened our resolve to save filtering for families one iota,” Harmon said in a statement. “VidAngel plans to appeal the District Court ruling, and explore options in the bankruptcy court. Our court system has checks and balances, and we are pursuing options on that front as well.”

Disney, Lucasfilm, Warner Bros. and 20th Century Fox sued VidAngel in 2016 for providing a streaming service that allowed users to avoid the degenerate content regularly found in their productions. These monolithic corporations are apparently intent on shoving smug down the throats of consumers whether they want it or not.

VidAngel maintains that their business practices are protected under the 2005 Family Movie Act, but Judge Andre Birotte believes otherwise. She ruled earlier this year that the company was operating in violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

Tim Winter, president of the Parents Television Council, is crying foul at a court system that is biased against wholesome entertainment. He is enraged that “lawyers for a multi-billion dollar company were able to squash a little mom-and-pop startup like a bug.”

“I do think it’s important for them to appeal,” he added.

“Congress now needs to step up and modernize the Family Movie Act to make sure that the courts understand this type of filtering,” Winter said to Christian Headlines. “Why would they say ‘transmit’ in the original Family Movie Act if they didn’t mean transmit?

“It’s angering,” he added, “that we worked so hard to pass that law in 05. We were successful against the forces of Hollywood. And now the forces of Hollywood are preventing companies from actually abiding by that.”

The studios are gloating that the court system is protecting their corruption of young souls in what very well may be an offering to Moloch.

“The jury today found that VidAngel acted willfully, and imposed a damages award that sends a clear message to others who would attempt to profit from unlawful infringing conduct at the expense of the creative community,” they said in a joint statement.

Winter hopes that VidAngel is ultimately successful because it was providing an alternative from the soul rot offered by Hollywood companies that are infamous for allowing sexual abuse, including the victimization of children.

“We want as many companies as possible to be in this marketplace, because that means the products are going to become better,” he said.

New Academic Paper Details How Big Tech Enables Left-Wing Terror to Take Root

Big Tech is enabling ANTIFA terror.

A new academic paper details exactly how Big Tech enables left-wing terror to take root on their monopolistic social media platforms.

The academic white paper, titled “Network-Enabled Anarchy: How Militant Anarcho-Socialist Networks Use Social Media to Instigate Widespread Violence Against Political Opponents and Law Enforcement,” is presented by the Miller Center for Community Protection and Resilience and powered by the Network Contagion Research Institute.

“Along with political but non-violent BLM-related slogans and calls to defund police, hateful codewords and memes, such as F*ck12 (f*ck or the cops) or FTP (f*ck or fight the police), appeared as associated hashtags with the ACAB meme on Twitter as confrontations with police escalated,” the researchers wrote in their report.

The researchers found a correlation between hate speech posted by far-left groups on social media and an increase in real-world violence.

“We found an escalation of the use of several kinds of anti-police memes and codewords over the course of the protests,” they noted.

“While these data are only preliminary, they nevertheless suggest that traditionally anarchist, antipolice memes, slogans and codewords fluctuated in sync with the recent political protests and unrest,” the researchers added.

They noted that law enforcement is having difficulty tracking these terrorists who are being enabled by Big Tech platforms.

“One important feature of the network-enabled mob is its capacity to frustrate the ability of law enforcement to detect directed ideological attacks. A core group of actors are able to mobilize lawlessness and violence. If it becomes widespread, the network-enabled mob enables a structure capable of adaptation and evolution especially if it reappears over consecutive days of unrest,” the researchers wrote.

The researchers presented detailed research indicating that ANTIFA uses Big Tech platforms to foment terrorism.

“Quarantine, economic hardship, social unrest, and ideological attacks against law enforcement provide extremists from white nationalist to anti-fascist with fodder for recruitment. Without tools for law enforcement to detect the planning and coordination of these cyber swarming events, police will be operating blind,” they concluded.

Big League Politics has reported on how monolithic social media networks have deliberately allowed left-wing terrorists to organize on their platforms:

Tech giant Facebook provided the platform that allowed ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter terrorists to foment a riot in Provo, Utah that resulted in gunfire striking one unfortunate motorist who encountered the mob.

Far Left Watch made the discovery that Facebook allowed the terrorists to collaborate and promote violence on their platform…

The organizers of the event, the Salt Lake City Antifascist Coalition, used a Malcolm X quote that explicitly endorses gun violence: “Sometimes you have to pick the gun up to put the Gun down.” It seems one of their activists took that message to heart when he picked up a gun and fired it at an unsuspecting motorist, wounding him. The Facebook event page has been archived here.

The ANTIFA organizers urged participants to “come stand with us” and refuse to accept blatant acts of “discrimination, racism, and unethical acts toward people of color.” They also advised demonstrators to “please wear all black,” “wear your masks,” “bring water,” and “wear protective eye gear if you got it.” They scheduled the event to challenge peaceful pro-police protesters with violent and combative street action…

By refusing to ban ANTIFA and BLM thugs from their platform, Facebook is condoning and sharing in the responsibility for the explosion of left-wing terrorism that is overtaking America.

Big Tech collaborators with ANTIFA domestic terrorists need to be prosecuted as such, and these social media entities need to lose their Section 230 privileges that give them a government-sanctioned monopoly over the marketplace.
