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.
Journalist Andy Ngo is Forced to Leave the U.S. After Credible Death Threats From ANTIFA
Ngo has fled the country.
Journalist Andy Ngo has been forced to leave the United States after enduring credible death threats from ANTIFA domestic terrorists over the course of many months.
Ngo made the shocking announcement that he has relocated to London during a recent appearance on Sky News. He explained how ANTIFA’s reign of terror forced him to leave his home of Portland, Ore. and then the country to protect his safety.
“For a number of months now there’s just been increasing threats of violence against me, promises by Antifa extremists to kill me,” Ngo said about his ordeal.
The full Sky News interview can be seen here:
Big League Politics has reported on how ANTIFA targeted Ngo in the past with violence in an attempt to intimidate him and prevent him from telling the truth about the domestic terror organization:
A Twitter post from Friday shows that the attack on reporter Andy Ngo, who was savagely beaten by an Antifa mob in Portland, Oregon, was premeditated.
“I am nervous about tomorrow’s Portland antifa rally,” he said on Twitter. “They’re promising ‘physical confrontation’ & have singled me out to be assaulted. I went on Tucker Carlson last year to explain why I think they’re doing this: They’re seeking meaning through violence.”
He posted several screenshots from a Facebook event – which of course portrayed the violent mob as the victims of violence themselves – and screenshots from a local Antifa website promoting the event.
“Oregon City Proud Boy [redacted] targets the Portland DSA in a Facebook thread encouraging other members of the hate group to participate in the June 29 assault on Portland. Local far-right Islamophobic journalist Andy Ngo – who participated in the Patriot Prayer and Proud Boys attack on Cedar Riot on May 1, 2019, and who was the first to publicly promote the June 29 Proud Boys event – also targets the DSA while dismissing as hoaxes a series of assaults against the Portland LGBTQ community, some of which were gloated about by far-right activists.”
Another part of the post noted that the group was planning on “physical confrontation,” but said that there are “plenty of other ways to help” if one is unable to partake in the violence.
Ngo’s fears were confirmed when he was attacked Saturday.
Ngo’s experiences show that ANTIFA is not an idea, but a dangerous group of terrorist thugs at war with the Bill of Rights and Constitution. By standing strong and continuing reporting the truth about ANTIFA, Ngo is refusing to let the terrorists win.
