BY ANDREW HOWARD You're watching multisource tech video news analysis from Newsy. Movie-streaming website Zediva has been called a clever end-run around studio copyright claims. Hollywood is less than impressed. Six of the biggest film studios are now suing the Santa Clara-based company. CNBC explains why Zediva’s unique approach has the studios crying -- ‘thief”. DAVID POGUE: “In California, they actually have a building filled to the ceiling with DVD players. One movie in every DVD player. When you hit play on the website, you are actually operating a physical DVD player in California and they are just pumping you the signal. I can change soundtracks, or turn on subtitles. They don’t let you see the outtakes or features yet, but they are working on that. You can watch on and off for two weeks instead of 24 hours and you pay only two dollars to watch a movie or ten for ten bucks.” Zediva considers itself a “renting” service, so it doesn’t pay royalties or fees to the movie studios. A Mashable blogger writes, building a company on a legal loophole? Not a good idea. “Through this convoluted scheme, the company thought it could avoid negotiating contracts and paying any money whatsoever to the film studios, since physical DVD rental stores don’t need studio agreements to run their businesses.” A reporter for CNET adds - loophole startups hardly ever work - and this one - definitely won’t. “Lots of better loophole-business models have come along that appeared to have a better claim on legality than this operation. Most of those were sued into oblivion. I'm not a lawyer but I'm predicting this one is headed to a permanent injunction and forced shutdown.” As of now - Zediva’s website is closed to new members- claiming registration is “temporarily full.” But it looks like the company will fight to stay in business. According to The Wrap... “Zediva has previously saidthat it is not obligated to pay licensing fees to movie companies because it is streaming DVDs not sharing files. Under the First Sale Doctrine, Zediva says it can rent or re-sale the discs it owns.” But a PC Magazine blogger writes- good luck with that, Zediva. The movie industry is tired of what it deems “copyright schemes.” “In recent years, Hollywood has moved aggressively to block what it sees as unauthorized use of its content, even if the services that did so were supposedly consumer-friendly.” So is Zediva a great way to watch movies? Or -- is it a rip-off artist? Follow Newsy Newsy_Videos for multisource tech video news in your stream. Get more multisource tech video news analysis from Newsy. Transcript by Newsy.
