NFLX VIAB

Viacom has filed suit against Netflix Inc. , accusing the streaming company of poaching a TV production executive, according to a report in Variety.

"Netflix has signaled that it has no intention of complying with the law, and that its illegal attempts to induce Viacom employees to break their contracts without consequence will not be limited to SenGupta," Viacom attorney Anthony J. Oncidi alleged. This isn't a first for Netflix; in 2016, 20th Century Fox also sued Netflix for hiring two of its employees before their contracts ended.
