Curiosity Stream VPPA Claims
Peiffer Wolf is currently investigating Curiosity Stream Video Privacy claims. Our investigations have led us to believe that video streaming service Curiosity Stream may have violated a federal law called the Video Privacy Protection Act.
Curiosity Stream allegedly tracked video content viewed by subscribers and then shared their private and sensitive data with Facebook and parent company Meta.
If you have an active Curiosity Stream subscription (or had one within the past two years) and accessed it through your web browser, you may be eligible to file a claim. Please contact Peiffer Wolf by filling out an online contact form or by calling (314) 669-3600 for a FREE Consultation.
The Video Privacy Protection Act | What to know
In 1988, the Video Privacy Protection Act (VPPA) was enacted at a time when streaming services and video content websites were still distant prospects. Recognizing the need to adapt the VPPA to modern technology, an amendment act was introduced in 2012, known as HR 6671, which subsequently became public law in 2013.
The Video Privacy Protection Act Amendments Act of 2012 specifically clarified that “a video tape service provider may obtain a consumer’s informed, written consent on an ongoing basis and that consent may be obtained through the Internet.”
Despite the provision allowing for the acquisition of consumer consent through the internet, some websites allegedly choose to share their consumers’ personal information with companies such as Meta, Google, and others, without obtaining explicit permission.

PRIVACY CASES IN THE NEWS
Typically, we represent clients on contingency fee agreements. If we take your case under a contingency fee arrangement, you won’t owe our firm any legal fees unless we are able to recover money for you.
Our contingency fee agreements are usually based on a percentage of the amount we recover for our clients. The contingency fee amount is determined by the type of case, our estimate of how long it will take to resolve your case, and our estimate of the litigation costs we will advance in your case. Each engagement agreement includes the details of the fee arrangement. Questions about our fee agreements are welcomed and encouraged.
In most litigation matters, it is extremely difficult – practically impossible – to predict how long it will take to resolve a particular case. Every case is different, and we will do our best to provide you with an estimate based on your case and our experience with similar cases. Moreover, we will do our best to keep you updated and manage expectations along the way.
