Hollywood kills software that instantly blocks profanity in movies

The State

A federal court has stopped the family-friendly content filter VidAngel from doing business, despite a federal law allowing what the company does to protect children from inappropriate video content.

VidAngel was designed to be the last line of protection for families when parents forget or are unaware about inappropriate content in movies. It censors everything from violence to nudity to bad language.

For instance, in the movie classic Gone With the Wind, families would hear the famous lines, “Rhett, if you go, what shall I do? … Frankly my dear, I don’t give a [beep].”

VidAngel saves parents from embarrassment and from having to explain to their kids what the word means. The service lets parents stream current movies and block the objectionable content, and it has been perfectly legal for years.
