  1. Maybe it’s just me, but clicking on either of the links above leads to a blank page within the VidAngel site.

    Also – do you have additional clarity on your Counsel’s perspective on how the hearing went, or when the Judge expects to provide a decision on the injunction?

  2. I really wish videos like this would provide sources to back up their claims.

    They mention the sony hack and portray them as having an agenda against movie filtering, I want to believe them, but I want the source to back it up.

    If it’s important enough to release a video, it should be important enough to provide sources for the assertions you make.

  3. When is the next court hearing? I live near Los Angeles, and would love to come support you in court if that’s ok (will be silent and well-mannered, of course).

    1. Thanks for the support. Court hearings are open to the public. It’s December 19th at 10am but Judge Birotte’s court room just moved buildings. Here’s the notice we received:

      NOTICE TO PARTIES by District Judge Andre Birotte Jr. Effective December 12, 2016, Judge Birotte will be located at the 1st Street Courthouse, COURTROOM 7B on the 7th floor, located at 350 W. 1st Street, Los Angeles, California 90012.

  4. Man, the Law360 article requires a membership to view… can’t you just cut and paste it into the blog :-; (ha ha). That is what ‘Hollywood’ SAYS you do, after all! Good luck guys, and thanks for fighting for what is right.

  5. Thank you for fighting for this!! Keep going strong. I hate Disney, so when I heard about this lawsuit I just knew I had to support you guys. Signing up for a membership now!

  6. Honestly, I don’t see why the film industry always gets their undies in a wad over things like this. Earlier this year, I introduced Star Wars to my kids using VidAngel. There were some things I didn’t want them to see (Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru as blackened corpses, some of the explosions, nothing major really. Just wanted to tone down a bit of the violence). And guess what! They absolutely fell in love with it just like I did when I was their age! Now where do you suppose that’s led? Well, when we went to Disneyland this year, one of my kids had to have a talking Chewbacca toy ($30). Another child was given Darth Vader and Yoda Christmas ornaments ($10). We will likely be giving them a Star Wars board game for Christmas ($25). When they started school this year, we gave them a wall hanging of Yoda with his classic “Do or do not” speech ($15). So just on those few things, that’s about $80 in Star Wars merchandise. Seems to me like Disney owes VidAngel a “thank you” instead of a lawsuit. And we’ve basically repeated this scenario with superhero movies (filtered by VidAngel and the Harry Potter franchise (filtered by VidAngel). The movie studios are now making money off of my family because I felt comfortable enough to show these movies to my kids because I was in control. VidAngel is doing Hollywood a service and they’re getting grief for it. Ridiculous. Best of luck to you guys! You definitely deserve to succeed!

  7. I think what you do is awesome! I’m sorry that they can’t see that. I wish you the best of luck, and will continue to stream as long as you are around editing movies 🙂

  8. You know what’s disturbing about these four studios that are suing VidAngel – for them it’s about “control”, controlling their viewers (if we filter cursing which includes using the Lord’s Name in vain, if we filter violence, etc. – they don’t want us to decide that some things are bad, not good this would negate them furthering their very anti-family, anti-Christian, “progressive” left agenda).
    It’s very sad that these studios are so desperate to spend millions of dollars to PREVENT us (the people/consumer) for having the final decision in the content of what we view and hear in the privacy of our home.
    Seriously, what difference is it to Disney (who’s supposedly family friendly) if I don’t eat to hear the Lord’s Name used in vain in a movie i, my home and with my kids???
    What are they missing? My only answer is they want to control me and my family and determine for us what is good … hence, we’re back to their ultimate agenda of pushing their liberal, left views.

    This whole lawsuit with these major, “all” powerful Studios vs. Vid Angel is a metaphor of David and Goliath.

    What are these Studios missing? My only answer is they want to control me and my family and determine for us what is good … hence, we’re back to their ultimate agenda of pushing and now FORCING by suing VidAngel their anti-family, anti-Christian, everything is good and true agenda (aka as the Left Liberals).
