The California Supreme Court has revived a trade libel lawsuit brought by online TV streaming service FilmOn against a company that provides information about websites to potential advertisers, which labeled FilmOn a copyright infringer and adult content provider.

A Los Angeles appellate court in 2017 previously affirmed a ruling by a lower court judge dismissing FilmOn’s case under California’s anti-SLAPP statute, finding that confidential reports that DoubleVerify generated for advertisers labeling FimOn an infringer and provider of “adult content” were constitutionally protected free speech and concerned a matter of public interest.
