Plex partners with Lionsgate to expand its collection of free streaming movies – 9to5Mac

Plex continues to expand its free collection of streaming films. The company announced today that it has partnered with Lionsgate to make a collection of free movies available to Plex users around the world.

Last month, Plex announced a similar deal with Warner Bros. to make a collection of feature films available to Plex users for free. Today’s partnership with Lionsgate further expands that initiative. All Plex users will have access to the content – not just Plex Pass subscribers.

Through the new deal, Plex users will be able to access a library of ad-supported movies from Lionsgate for free via the Plex application. Unlike the Warner Bros. partnership, which is limited to the United States, the Lionsgate content will be available to Plex users around the world.

Facebook plans launch of its own “Supreme Court” for handling takedown appeals

Facebook, which has managed to transcend geographic borders to draw in a population equal to roughly a third of all human life on Earth, has made its final charter for a ”Supreme Court” of Facebook public. The company pledges to launch this initiative by November of next year.

The new Oversight Board will have five key powers, according to a charter (PDF) Facebook released yesterday. It can ”request that Facebook provide information” it needs in a timely manner; it can make interpretations of Facebook standards and guidelines ”in light of Facebook’s articulated values”; and it can instruct the company to allow or remove content, to uphold or reverse a decision leading to content being permitted or removed, and to issue ”prompt, written explanations of the board’s decisions.”
