- The legal commotion surrounding Popcorn Time is increasing and that the makers of the streaming service put up to launch a new service. Butter contains substantially the same building blocks as Popcorn Time, only the direct references to copyrighted material missing.
With the launch, the creators seem the core technology of Popcorn Time to want to present as a legitimate service. Butter contains all the technology to create a comprehensive streaming service, but no direct reference to piracy. Users who add themselves to Butter in fact in a position to make their own Popcorn Time. Butter itself only gives access to open cash, such as the Internet Archive.
