Prime Video users cannot claim ownership of streaming content: Amazon

Users of Amazon Prime Video cannot claim ownership of content they purchase on the platform says the company after a woman filed a lawsuit in a U.S District Court alleging unfair competition and false advertising.

According to the company, users are warned in terms of use what an Amazon Prime Video user pays for is a limited license for on demand viewing over an indefinite period of time. The lawsuit claims Amazon secretly reserves the right to terminate Prime Video users’ access to content purchased through the service. The plaintiff stated that the service misleads consumers because video content might later become unavailable if a third-party rights holder revokes or modifies Amazon’s license.
