- The American film industry, represented by the MPAA, said to be responsible for the downfall of the controversial streaming service Popcorn Time. There are various versions of the illegal Netflix competitor in circulation, but one of the most important (popcorntime.io) joined last month from the air.
According Popcorn Time is the cause of these disputes between developers. The MPAA says that its six members in Canada have launched a lawsuit against the managers of popcorn time. io, and in New Zealand a separate case against the operator of a BitTorrent site that delivered pirated movies and series to Popcorn Time, writes The Verge.
Incidentally Popcorn Time not yet fully eliminated. Another major version, popcorn-time. se, is still accessible.
