There have been some new legal developments related to the FCC’s 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act. The Attorney General’s office has weighed in on recent litigation against Netflix. The National Association of the Deaf, Western Massachusetts Association of the Deaf and Hearing Impaired, and Lee Nettles have taken action against Netflix for failing to caption all of their “Watch Instantly” streaming content. The case will set a precedent for future litigation regarding the CVAA and accessibility.
We have updated our white paper on the CVAA with a more detailed explanation of the case and the matters upon which the Attorney General has made comment. Please sign up for the updated CVAA white paper here!
