Zediva, the new, somewhat unknown streaming service, has been sued by the MPAA for streaming DVDs online. MPAA claims that Zediva doesn’t have the right to stream movies as it’s not a regular streaming service. Zediva doesn’t obtain a streaming license from the studios, instead it acquires DVDs and streams them, which MPAA is now objecting to with a lawsuit.
Zediva has used its system to stream recent films like The Social Network and The Fighter, where it offers customers to stream 10 movies for $10 bucks. Don’t expect Zediva to last long, though.
