FAQ: Would VidAngel Paint Over Nude Paintings?

October 5, 2016 by

Nope.

This is a metaphor we hear a lot. And the answer is no. It is illegal to forcibly change art that does not belong to you. It would also be illegal for VidAngel to created an edited version of a movie and then sell it to you. We don’t do that.

Now, just like how your Great Aunt Ethel is free to buy a miniature statue of David and knit him a tiny pair of 1940s style trousers, you are also free to skip scenes and mute words in movies you watch at home.

With VidAngel you buy the movie, then filter content you own in the privacy of your home. You aren’t even making an edited version; you’re using VidAngel like a remote control. (A really cool, hi-tech remote that you won’t lose in the crusty crevices of your couch.)

    We appreciate vidAngel. There are ALOT of movies we don’t watch because of language and sexuality. Thank you for giving us such freedom.

    My family and I are very grateful for your app. I spend time with young people from my local church and when we do watch movies I always use your app to make sure that nothing offensive comes up. Thank you for this app, I hope you guys continue the great work. You guys are awesome!

    Your service would be much more useful if you could censor sexual scenes by cropping for example. It would still be great if it was possible to skip the scene but play the sound and voices anyway. I’m sure you can find a way to do something like that legally.

      Thanks for the suggestion!
