Sen. Orrin Hatch Urges MPAA to Allow Filtering on Streaming Services

While the studios have been on a winning streak in court, Senator Orrin Hatch’s salvo suggests that Congress may again intervene to allow family-friendly audiences to filter content. The letter notes that technology has advanced since 2005, and argues that the allowance for filtering should keep pace. Though Hatch does not threaten to pursue a legislative fix, Congress could update the [Family Movie Act] to explicitly condone filtered streaming if the studios do not first make some accommodation for it. – Gene Maddaus, Variety
