Sharing the password of OTT is common. The password of one account is used between friends and among many family members. But now action can be taken on doing so. In fact, the UK government’s Intellectual Property Office has published a new piracy guideline, under which people who share their Netflix, Amazon Prime or Disney+ passwords are infringing copyright laws. According to TorrentFreak, the IPO has informed it that sharing the password could mean jail time or heavy fines for cheating.

Earlier this year, a decrease in Netflix subscription numbers was recorded. America’s largest streaming company had told that the number of its subscribers has decreased by 9,70,000 during April to June this year. At that time, Netflix officials have also made it clear that the company will be strict on sharing login and password, due to which many people are able to access the content of the platform without paying.

However, looking at the services of streaming service apps, it is found that password sharing has always been a violation of the terms. It only said that password sharing is not illegal but Netflix & Co. In particular, it does not allow this.

Leave the headline, there is no mention of meta in the consultation. Even before this no talk has been done about meta. When clarification was sought from the Intellectual Property Office on the legal side of password sharing being put in the category of piracy, all they had to say was that there should be no compromise in this.
