Manyvids has responded with their AB5 plans

Clip site Manyvids has released this information regarding their plans for AB5:

“We know that many California-based creators and MV Stars who use the ManyVids’ platform are worrying how this news will impact their careers and we want to assure you we’re aware of this development, take it seriously, and that we’re looking into this with our lawyers and legal team.

We want to do what’s best for all our MV Stars who are paving their own career paths and being their own bosses and we’re currently looking into our options. We know this can be nerve-racking for our California creators but for the time being, it is business as usual and we will update the MV Community as soon as we have more information or receive further updates.”
