Netflix, Netflix, the streaming service company, and Amazon Prime video service provider, have reached a settlement with the US Department of Justice.
We continue to believe that the DOJ did not take sufficient steps to ensure that Amazon’s content was available and available in a fair and equitable manner to customers. “
The settlement addresses the DOJ’s concerns over Netflix’s use of the ‘Amazonian’ logo on its site.
Netflix’s move comes amid growing criticism from rights groups of the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for its lack of action in recent months in a number of major areas including copyright and TV licensing.””
We look forward to bringing this matter to an end in court.”
Netflix’s move comes amid growing criticism from rights groups of the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for its lack of action in recent months in a number of major areas including copyright and TV licensing.
“The FTC has consistently made it clear that it will take swift action to enforce the law against any illegal use of a brand, service, or brand or service provider,” said Jessica Rich, a senior counsel at the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
The Justice Department declined to comment on the agreement.
Last month, the Federal Communications Board (FBC) ruled that Netflix must stop using Amazon Prime to sell its streaming service.
In March, Netflix told the US Senate that it would stop selling its streaming services and its video service, which is currently available on the iTunes App Store.
In the settlement, Netflix will pay $250 million and cease using Amazon’s logo on the sites of its video streaming service, Netflix Video, and its service for purchasing and renting content, including movies and television shows.
It will also pay $50 million to settle a lawsuit filed by the Electronic Entertainment Expo Association, which argues that Netflix is infringing on the copyrights of video game developers by using the Amazonian logo on certain parts of its streaming video site.
