In the News …

Some items the Victor crew came across this week:

Netflix
The government has now ruled that sharing passwords for Netflix can be considered a federal crime in the ruling of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Netflix already allows two screens to play in a regular account with two household users. It costs another $2 per month to add two more household members.

The sharing limitations also apply to HBO go.

Avast
Avast just acquired AVG. For the uninformed, they are both computer security companies that you can run for free. The companies have been confused with each other in the past because of the similarities of their names (both start with AV.) (There is yet another free antivirus program starting with AV – Avira started in the 1980s in Germany.) Both were originally from the two different cities in the Czech Republic. AVG came first; both were started in the late 1980s.
