#17-316 FilmOn.com v. Doubleverify, Inc., S244157. (B264074; 13 Cal.App.5th 707; Los Angeles County Superior Court; BC561987.) Petition for review after the Court of Appeal affirmed an order granting a special motion to strike in a civil action. This case presents the following issue: In determining whether challenged activity furthers the exercise of constitutional free speech rights on a matter of public interest within the meaning of Civil Code section 425.16, should a court take into consideration the commercial nature of that speech, including the identity of the speaker, the identity of the audience and the intended purpose of the speech?
