PTC Commends VidAngel Plan to Emerge From Bankruptcy; Condemns Disney’s Effort to Kill Content Filtering

Written by PTC | Published March 6, 2020


LOS ANGELES (March 6, 2020) – The Parents Television Council commended VidAngel’s announcement that the company has a plan to emerge from bankruptcy.

“Once again the leadership team at VidAngel has demonstrated its commitment to conducting its content filtering business honorably and within the expressed intent of Congress as documented in the Family Movie Act of 2005. And once again the mighty forces of Disney have demonstrated their insidious obsession to kill the rights of families to filter explicit content,” said PTC President Tim Winter.

“Disney lawyers are fighting against collecting the very financial judgment that they themselves secured, in order to drive a dagger through the heart of filtering technology once and for all. We hope the courts see through Disney’s smokescreen. And we call on the Congress to make it unmistakably clear to the courts, and to Hollywood, that consumers have free speech rights to filter out explicit streaming content that is pouring into their homes, by passing an update to the 2005 Act.”
