I wish I was reaching out to you tonight for a better reason than this. The judge in the VidAngel case has broken his silence earlier than anticipated by granting Hollywood their injunction on VidAngel.
What does this mean for VidAngel?
First off, if you’re like me you probably have a lot of questions about what this means for the future of VidAngel and the filtering industry. Neal Harmon, the CEO of VidAngel just released a statement on their plans moving forward including a very exciting announcement!. I won’t spoil it for you so check it out!
What does this mean for the #SaveFiltering movement?
VidAngel is ready to fight all the way to the Supreme Court and as long as they are fighting, we’re going to continue to raise awareness and gather signatures for the #SaveFiltering movement.
In a statement made by VidAngel to the press “...while we are extremely disappointed—for the countless people who rely on our service regularly to enjoy movies using filters—our customers have given us not just the mandate to fight this battle all the way to the Supreme Court, but the financial resources as well. We will aggressively pursue an appeal and take this case to a higher level where we have always believed we will ultimately prevail."
