VidAngel, the market-leading entertainment platform empowering users to filter language, nudity, violence and other content from movies and TV shows, is engaged in a high-profile legal battle with Disney, Warner Bros, 20th Century Fox and Lucasfilm.
On Nov. 14, Judge Andre Birotte, Jr. heard oral arguments regarding Disney’s request for a Preliminary Injunction against VidAngel until the legal process is concluded.
Neal Harmon, CEO of VidAngel, offered the following statement:About VidAngel
“VidAngel is on a rock-solid legal foundation because we built our company to strictly comply with the 2005 Family Movie Act, a law that clearly protects and encourages entertainment filtering services, without requiring the permission of major studios. Judge Birotte asked thoughtful questions and clearly had reviewed the extensive factual evidence, declarations and briefs from both sides. Our legal team, led by David Quinto, did a first-rate job presenting the facts of the case, detailing why our customers should continue to have the right to filter content as the larger legal process plays out. We look forward to the decision of the Court.”
