Politico: Netflix has created a political action committee called FLIXPAC to help the company influence Washington.
Called FLIXPAC, the committee may now make contributions donations directly to federal candidates — up to $5,000 per election.
And it provides Netflix with another political tool with which to aggressively press a pro-intellectual property, anti-video piracy agenda — an effort it began in earnest in 2010, when the company began heavily investing in federal lobbying efforts.
Here's the filing to form the PAC, in case you're wondering how a PAC is setup.
Thanks to Nathan and Ted for sending this in.
