When The Internet’s Pools Are Shut Down In 2018, The End Is Nigh
Posted On July 11, 2021
By September 2018, Google’s Internet Protocols (IP) filtering system was widely known to be a big headache for some people.
In the case of Netflix, a company that was caught blocking access to certain content for copyright infringement, the issue was even worse.
Netflix is one of the most well-known content providers, with a global subscriber base of more than 300 million users, who were able to enjoy movies, TV shows, and video games without much of a problem.
But things took a turn for the worse when Google, which was also the internet’s biggest content provider, decided to take a crack at blocking access, essentially forcing people to use an alternative internet browser for viewing.
Google’s actions were a direct violation of the Terms of Service, which stipulates that “you agree to not use any of the services, products, or services offered by us (or by our affiliates) without our prior written permission.”
That meant Google would have to shut down all the content it didn’t like, including Netflix.
So Netflix filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, which in 2018 settled the case for $1.5 billion.
In 2018 Netflix and other content providers filed a lawsuit against Google.
While the case was settled in the end, the Netflix lawsuit was a significant setback for Google.
The company lost some of its biggest customer base, which meant it lost money.
Netflix had a tough time getting paid, as the company had to pay Google a royalty that it was not legally entitled to receive.
It was a huge blow to Google’s business, and it forced the company to take action that had the potential to disrupt Netflix.
Netflix’s lawsuit also set a precedent for other content companies, like YouTube and Hulu, which had faced similar legal battles with Google in the past.
Now, it looks like Netflix is going to be the first one to be shut down by the internet.
Netflix, Google, and the rest of the internet are all getting together in 2018 to discuss what happens to the internet in 2018.
It seems the future is going in a different direction, but Netflix will still be around.
The internet is getting increasingly decentralized, with more people using more platforms.
It’s going to take some time for the internet to get back to its pre-internet days.
