Sony and others aren't happy with Google's piracy role, Xaomi is the new smartphone player and another Samsung Galaxy S6 "leak"
Google, Facebook among those that say the film studios' suit against the MovieTube site aims to resurrect the wide powers that copyright holders would have had if SOPA had become law.
Google and Microsoft are working on a Web standard for video copy protection, but the idea has notable opponents. Now the MPAA can lend its voice directly to the controversy.
The offering will shut down in March, but the retailer has made arrangements for rented content to be available on another streaming service.
Along with paying millions of dollars, the file-sharing locker is also ordered to introduce copyright filtering technology or cease all operations.
It was another terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week for Sony, and we learned even more as reporters sifted through a trove of stolen documents from the Hollywood studio.
Using information from alleged documents leaked by the Sony hackers, Google said the Motion Picture Association of America and Mississippi's attorney general conspired to limit free speech on the Internet.
The search giant continues its campaign against Mississippi's Jim Hood. Google says his request for company information is an "unjustified attack" that violates federal law.
The MPAA has launched a helpful site that shows you where you can legally stream, rent, purchase and otherwise watch what it is you want.
The immensely popular file-sharing service agrees to close the site amid allegations of copyright infringement, along with pay Hollywood movie studios $110 million in damages.
