The streaming service – which allows families to filter content such as adult language, nudity and violence from movies – came under fire in 2016 when 20th Century Fox, Disney, Lucas Film and Warner Bros Studios filed copyright infringement and piracy lawsuits.

The company lost the year-long legal battle in 2017, but was able to stay afloat by switching their services to filter content from from Netflix, Amazon and HBO streaming services using iOS, Android, and ROKU.

Now, the new bill sponsored by US Rep. Mia Love (R-UT) would be an updated version of a 2005 law passed by Congress called The Family Home Movie Act (FMA).

It states that individuals would be allowed to “limit portions of audio or video content for private viewing” as long as “no fixed copy of the altered version is created.”
