In the past week, the number of free movie rentals on Netflix has jumped by almost 70 percent.
In just over two months, the streaming service has posted a gain of more than 6,500 rentals, and it’s set to surpass the 10 million rentals mark next month.
Netflix has been one of the most popular streaming platforms, with more than one billion downloads since the service launched in 2013.
In September, Netflix surpassed YouTube, which had the largest number of downloads, with 9.1 billion.
The average monthly cost for a streaming movie is $1.99, according to Netflix.
As Netflix has gained popularity, it has also become a hotbed for piracy.
On Wednesday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed legislation that would create a “copyright czar” to oversee the industry, but it is unclear how the new office will work and who would oversee it.
In an interview with ABC News on Wednesday, Netflix’s vice president of content, Roy Price, told ABC News that he doesn’t have a specific role in the creation of the new agency.
Price also said he did not want to speculate on what would happen with the proposed new agency or whether there would be any repercussions.
Price said the company is already working with the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) and the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), the two organizations that have traditionally run copyright enforcement.
The MPAA is the industry group that represents the studios and film producers.
The ESA represents the film and TV industries.
The ESA and the MPAA have had a long relationship, Price said.
The MPAA has been a major supporter of the film industry in the past, and they’ve both been involved in copyright issues over the years.
The U.K. government also supported the ESA and its role in enforcing copyright laws in the United Kingdom.
The legislation also includes provisions that would give the copyright czar the power to enforce new laws on copyright infringement.
The new office would be overseen by the director of the Office of General Counsel, which would oversee the enforcement of new copyright laws and other policy decisions, according the legislation.
The proposed new office also will be responsible for determining which content is covered by new copyright provisions.
Price said the office would also be responsible to “take action” if content is found to violate a copyright or other rights.
The office would have the power of review in determining if an infringement has occurred, Price told ABC.
Netflix did not respond to a request for comment.
