In short, Netflix bought a video on Pond5 (news footage) that he put in a movie ... a mini scandal, here in Quebec ... who put the video for sale?

The mis-use of footage by buyers is what concerns me the most.  Was the video listed as editorial?  If so, I'd say the fault is on the producers of the movie.  If not, I'd say the fault lies on the agency.

Do we know for sure it was licensed from Pond5?

I've had numerous clips on mine on TV shows and Netflix movies.  Luckily, nothing of mine has caused a stir -- yet.

It should be noted that using news footage of civil unrest, violence, and tragedy is very common in films, even when its used somewhat deceptively standing in for a fictional event as in the case of Bird Box. If a film features a tornado, for example, a filmmaker might employ stock footage of real tornados and their devastation.

EW has confirmed that the Bird Box footage, which was purchased from a stock-footage vendor, will stay in the film. Netflix had no comment.
