Movie Sanitizing Service Ordered To Pay $62M In Piracy Suit

First of all, why in the world would you think this was legal? Secondly, who would actually rent this type of hacked up content?

VidAngel bought retail DVDs of mainstream movies and ripped the video file. It pulled out adult content, cursing, sex and violent aspects and streamed the films to users. It claimed it was legally allowed to do this under the Family Entertainment And Copyright Act, which legalizes tech to censor certain aspects of movies, but the studios and the jury disagreed.
