A member of the House of Representatives introduced a bill Thursday that would protect filtering/streaming services like VidAngel in federal law.
A federal judge in 2016 ruled that VidAngel– a service popular among traditional and Christian families – could not filter movies from Disney, Warner Bros., 20th Century Fox and Lucasfilm. An appeals court subsequently upheld that ruling.
VidAngel then launched a streaming service in 2017 that filters content not made by those studios, including much of the popular content on Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu.
Under the bill, H.R.6816, the Family Entertainment and Copyright Act of 2005 would be amended to make clear it protects streaming services, too, and not just DVD players. It was sponsored by Rep. Mia Love, a Republican, and has four co-sponsors. The new bill is called The Family Movie Act Clarification Act of 2018.
VidAngel’s technology allows families to filter out edgy content from movies such as coarse language, nudity, and excess violence. Another company, ClearPlay, offers its own filtering service. Both companies would be protected.
The Protect Family Rights Coalition (PFRC) applauded the bill.
“The 2005 Family Movie Act was a long and extremely hard-fought battle in which we were outspent and outmanned, and yet despite major pressure from Hollywood, were able to convince both parties…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
