How the UK is fighting to stop people watching films without consent

Google is under fire from campaigners over the practice of allowing people to watch movies without consent.

The internet giant’s UK subsidiary, Play Movies, said it had begun working with the Home Office to make sure that it would be legally allowed to block content, but was worried that the practice could lead to unintended consequences.

The issue came to light after users noticed that some films had been blocked from viewing on the Play Movies website, with a screen that read “Sorry, but you are not allowed to watch this content on this site”.

It was not clear why the company had blocked the movies or how it was blocking them.

Play Movies said it did not block any of the films it hosts on its website.

But the company’s chief executive, Mark Hutton, told the BBC the policy had been taken into account by its lawyers.

“We don’t block anything that we don’t want,” he said.

“But we also have an obligation to our users, which is to make them aware of what they are getting into.”

“There’s a whole range of films, and some that we think are potentially harmful.”

In the UK, Play Movie is not the only film service that has come under fire over its approach to blocking content.

In July, the Guardian revealed that Netflix was using an algorithm to filter out films it considered to be harmful.

The Guardian investigation found that Netflix had been using algorithms to remove potentially harmful films.

Netflix also said that it had “agreed to the principles of the Digital Economy Act 2012”, which gives the regulator the power to block sites it considers to be “unreasonably harmful”.

A spokesperson for Netflix said the company would “look into” the Guardian’s findings and had “been in discussions with the UK Government and the Home Affairs Select Committee on the issue”.

But the Guardian reported that the Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, had expressed concern that the government was “slapping back” at the “failing” Play Movies.

“Netflix is not responsible for the content that people watch on its platforms, but they have been making a significant contribution to the digital economy, particularly through the use of their content to support local communities,” she said in a statement.

“This is a huge challenge for us to overcome and is something that we are very keen to work together on, but it is clear that the UK government does not agree with that approach.”
