Netflix Password Sharing Can Be Considered Illegal!

Netflix Password Sharing Can Be Considered Illegal!

The UK government has made statements stating that it may be illegal to share Netflix passwords.

The UK government has made confusing statements that it may be illegal to give your Netflix password to an acquaintance . Since the laws are not clear on this issue, the government will be confused as well, and no action will be taken unless the police say.

The UK government’s economy has been in turmoil for some time, and the Brexit process, which cost $48 billion in tax revenues, contributed greatly to this. The UK government is a country notorious for making very radical decisions about its domestic laws, despite the fact that they themselves regularly threaten to violate international law.

Netflix: We Will Not Sue Anyone

According to BBC News , the UK government’s Intellectual Property Office (IPO) has declared that Netflix password sharing is a matter of both criminal and civil law, stating that “ These provisions may include breach of contractual terms, fraud or secondary copyright infringement, depending on the circumstances. He underlined the seriousness of the situation.

BBC News specifically asked if this meant that the UK’s Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) could characterize those who share Netflix passwords as criminals. In response:

An IPO spokesperson said, “The decision to charge someone for sharing passwords for streaming services will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. As with all cases, if they are referred by an investigator to the CPS for an indictment, our duty will be to prosecute where there is sufficient evidence and a prosecution is necessary in the public interest. ” he said.

So, if the streaming service chooses to involve the police, it could go to court, which could turn into a criminal case, but Netflix announced to BBC News that it will not sue anyone .
