Enforce your right as a parent to protect your family

In today’s world, when it comes to protecting the well-being of our children, many parents just like you are faced with an onslaught of media competing for the attention of their young minds. This is not just sexual content, violence and language, we’re talking about. Your kids are being fed innuendos, subliminal messages, indoctrination and social conditioning like never before in history. Filtering services like VidAngel allow you to pre-edit (skip over parts you choose) movies and TV shows giving you peace of mind about what your children are exposed to.

Right now there is another battle waging behind the scenes, and its outcome will directly affect your rights as a parent. Four Hollywood studios (Disney—along with Warner Bros, 20th Century Fox, and Lucasfilm) have entered in legal battles with VidAngel, in a case that is sure to set a precedent for the future of the filtering industry. This is not the first time Hollywood has strongly opposed filtering services. After all, they were against the Family Movie Act (FMA), a law designed to empower parents and enable filtering services. The #SaveFiltering petition exists to enforce your right to choose how your family consumes content in the privacy of your own home before Hollywood takes it away.

    These businesses keep popping up because PEOPLE WANT THIS!! Who are these selfish people in Hollywood that love their violence and sex so much that they want to subject everyone to it? No- we don’t need to see every last gory drop to appreciate a story. No, we’re not going to post a review of your movie as if we had seen the whole thing. We’ll just enjoy what we can. Good grief- I can’t believe people are so greedy and supercilious.

    VidAngel is just about the only movies/tv we watch besides wholesome cartoons on Netflix. We don’t subscribe to television and rarely go to the movies because we don’t want to have to worry about “just that one part” that has the potential to ruin an otherwise great theme of a movie. You can imagine how excited we were when we discovered VidAngel, and it seems to follow copyright laws that clean flicks and ClearPlay couldn’t. We stay away from Rated R themed movies that can’t really be edited, but there are plenty of historically themed PG-13 and R movies that have a good message but don’t need “just that one part.” This is where VidAngel comes into play, very open about the fact that they are following all copyright rules, and providing an opportunity to view editing entertainment. Studios could make the argument that if we don’t like the content of the movie, we simply don’t watch any of the movie, but not only is there good to a lot of movies that have the unnecessary “one part,” those “parts” desensitize our ears and eyes and brains to wholesome thoughts, ideals, and actions. I don’t understand how movie studios are taking a hit from this when we are participating in a consignment program of buying and selling. I am appalled that a program (VidAngel) meant to give the general public an option for wholesome family viewing is being targeted and pulled down when, for example, the multi-billion dollar pornography industry is being quietly supported, an industry whose distortion of relationships and human interaction should be deemed as the real public health crisis, not something like VidAngel! Families should be protected and catered to in this country, given choices and opportunities for learning and entertainment.

    VidAngel has allowed my family to watch movies that without having to view content that we do not wish to see, and they have done so legally.


    Once I have purchased something, I can do with it as I wish so long as I do not use it illegally. If I purchase a DVD and watch it at home, a Hollywood studio representative could not come into my home and demand that I not mute the TV for certain words or fast forward past certain scenes. The DVD belongs to me and I can watch – or NOT watch – it as I please. The same principle applies to movies I watch on VidAngel. Even though I am streaming online, I have purchased the movie and I can choose how I want to watch it.


    If I choose to sell the movie after I watch it, I have every right to do so, and if VidAngel chooses to purchase the movie back from me they have every right do so. They also have every right to sell the movie again if they purchased it legally in the first place, which I am assuming they did.


    If those Hollywood studios are bothered by the thought of another company making a profit off of filtering, they are welcome to develop their own filtering systems and products for their movies. If they do not wish to do so they don’t have to. Either way they do not have the authority to infringe upon VidAngel’s first sale rights or my rights as a consumer to use my product in any legal manner in which I choose to do so.

    VidAngel opened up a whole bunch of great movies for my family and I to watch that otherwise we wouldn’t.


    It’s as simple as this:


    The music industry provides edited and censored tracks to radio stations to reach a broader market—the general public. Walmart also sells edited versions of albums and tracks.


    Why doesn’t the movie industry follow suit? I’m not too sure, but it makes sense to do so and that’s what VidAngel is doing.


    Let the market decide what the market wants and needs. In my market, VidAngel is what I want and what my family needs.
