Netflix is a streaming media company which was founded in 1997. Originally, they were competing with Blockbuster for DVD rentals using a mail order service. Eventually, they became the biggest service to stream movies to customers' TVs by internet for a monthly subscription. Streaming video services require heavy broadband bandwidth usage. It was reported in 2013 that YouTube and Netflix account for half of all internet traffic in North America.
Netflix is a worldwide service with more than 70 million subscribers. The have grown to develop their own shows for distribution such as the popular House of Cards and Orange is the New Black.

Allegations of distributing child pornography

The video streaming service and content-producer Netflix is currently hosting a film entitled Cuties that sexualizes young girls, including through dance scenes that simulate sexual activities and a scene exposing a minor’s bare breast.
I urge the Department of Justice to investigate the production and distribution of this film to determine whether Netflix, its executives, or the individuals involved in the filming and production of Cuties violated any federal laws against the production and distribution of child pornography.
Two days ago, Netflix released “Cuties” to its subscribers in the United States.
The film, directed by a French director, is ostensibly about an 11-year-old girl in Paris who becomes a member of a provocative dance group with other similarly-aged girls.
The film routinely fetishizes and sexualizes these pre-adolescent girls as they perform dances simulating sexual conduct in revealing clothing, including at least one scene with partial child nudity.
These scenes in and of themselves are harmful.
And it is likely that the filming of this movie created even more explicit and abusive scenes, and that pedophiles across the world in the future will manipulate and imitate this film in abusive ways.
As you know, the Department of Justice has a significant role in preventing the sexual abuse of children.
The Department enforces federal criminal law making it a serious crime to produce or distribute material involving the sexual exploitation of minors, including the filming of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct. See, e.g., 18 U.S.C. §§ 2251, 2252.By investigating and prosecuting offenders who possess and distribute images and video sexually depicting minors, the Department both obtains justice for those who have been abused and helps protect children from future sexual abuse and exploitation.
Former Obama National Security Advisor Susan E. Rice is on the board of directors of Netflix.
