The streaming service VidAngel has been ordered to pay more than $62 million to four Hollywood film studios.
The judge ruled the company violated the studios' copyrights by streaming filtered versions of their movies.
A federal jury in California ruled Monday that the streaming company must pay $62.4 million in damages to four studios that accused it of copyright infringement.
In a joint statement the studios, which include Disney, Fox and Warner Brothers, said:
"The jury today found that VidAngel acted willfully, and imposed a damages award that sends a clear message to others who would attempt to profit from unlawful infringing conduct at the expense of the creative community."
VidAngel allows users to filter explicit content from movies.
