Blanck quoted in Boston Globe article about Netflix captioning case
June 22, 2012
The Boston Globe turned to University Professor Peter Blanck, chairman of the Burton Blatt Institute at Syracuse University, for his expert analysis of a federal case involving Netflix and the captioning of movies and TV shows streamed online.
US District Judge Michael Ponsor rejected Netflix’s argument that it is exempt from the Americans with Disabilities Act.
“Under the judge’s reading of the law,” Blanck told the newspaper, “all Internet businesses must add features that make their sites usable by people with disabilities.” Blanck also noted, “the law requires that there is full and equal enjoyment of services offered by a commercial entity.”
