From the main page, that Sasha

looks exactly like the porn star and Vince's girlfriend from Entourage on HBO!

Is that a coincidence?

It's not a coincidence when she is a porn star named "Sasha Grey" on Entourage and she is an actual porn star named "Sasha Grey."

I thought it would have been pretty apparent from the show, especially when they mention the movie "The Girlfriend Experience" which is not a porn, which she is also in.

AP -- Man Sues Porn Companies

An Iowa man, named John Doe in the complaint, sued for porn outfits since he claims "repetitive motion injuries" in his left hand, and the injuries have significantly reduced his ability at enjoyment of life.

His attorney, Dick Masters, said, "There should be warning labels on porn or more people will suffer this debilitating injury to their hands." He further stated the man used porn as a "marriage enhancement." Five hundred sixty-nine videos were submitted as evidence.

Long Duck Dong, attorney for the defendants, said the lawsuit had no merit and the man was obviously a pervert. He also said, "The videos he watched were downloaded illegally which means the problem is in John Doe's hand, er, hands."

Oh so true . . .

Yikes!

"It seems like it will be quite embarrassing for whichever user ends up in a lawsuit about using a popular shemale title," Vivas said, using a term that refers to a person who has female features but male genitalia.

"When it comes to private sexual fantasies . . . "

In those cases, I'd imagine most people would rather be caught pirating some MPAA offering.

Blackmail may work way better than lawsuits in court. Pay $5,000 to settle or we will file your name in court along with making all the evidence public.

bootlegging Porno, Please


Hello Baby I'm Mr. Ed
Oh this is really rich when you have rival porno sites ripping off each others material. The big problem they are going to have is proving it is their material.

I can see a sleaze bag lawyer suing on behave of animal porno actors that feel their performances are being cheapened by all of their shows being stolen. Can you see Mr Ed testifying in court.

Court papers being served on a member of the Russian Mafia that is ripping off these Oscar quality productions to fill their subscriber based sites. You die, the process server dies, she dies, everyone dies.

There is a great mystery on the net; is there a search term that does not bring up porno at some point?

Doubtful. Reference »The things people do with a company computer...... regarding "booger/snot" porn.

Trust me. If you want your childhood memories turned inside-out, start searching. If it exists, there is porn of it.

Actually the LEGIT porn sites don't rip of each there material. It's the freeloading tubes sites that are doing it. These tubes are about to get sued to the hilt too. LEGIT porn sites would love nothing better for all the tube sites to die. Sites ging out full length scenes does NOT lead to more membership subscriptions to LEGIT porn sites.

This will backfire

This wont stop illegal sharing, only push it to seed boxes and usenet. It will also create sympathy for those being sued. They will claim addiction and the terrible effects of pornography on their psyche. Before it is said and done congress will be talking about making porn illegal again. This is just a bad plan all around.

And what is YOUR solution then? Are they supposed to let obvious copyright infringer go and do what they want? This helps how. Putting bank robbers in jail doens't stop people form trying to rob banks but it helps more than just letting bank robbers go witthout punishment and asking nicely for them to stop doing it.

Re: This will backfire

Putting bank robbers in jail does not back fire on the banks and lead to laws outlawing banks. These stunt lawsuits will lead to clergy, politicians, and media types talking about the evils of pornography. This will not accomplish their goals. As far as how to stop illegal sharing, who knows what will stop it, but I can assure you, it wont be this.

Badongo
Mediafire
Zshare
FileFactory
...
...
And all the other hosting file sites that pay for traffic of illegal movies.

And though they filter for specific copyrighted media, they do a poor job as it is easy to circumvent with .rar files, encrypted and bogus text in the first file of the segmented files. And some film/DVD rip posters will take out all the credits, watermarks, etc...

This is hilarious

Seriously. This is the 21st Century! Who would give a serious crap? Madison Avenue uses half naked women to sell everything from tomatoes to cars for god's sakes, and don't forget, we all saw Janet Jackson's tit flashed for all to gaze at (porn porn porn.... the religious right must be having a veritable orgasm). My girl friend would care? The one I.... well, do it with? Seriously now! This is going a bit too far. Corporate insanity with a gone-wild, creepy, litigious twist. I love it. I hope their legal fees are off the wall, and break their bank!

Glad I got my Canadian VPN running on LINUX (yeah screw you too Job$ and Gate$), Not for porn, who needs it? We watch free movies all the time (A crap-load of em), Why waste time in a crowded over-priced theater, where bad pop-corn costs more than the price of admission, when you can cuddle, do it, and watch sexy Angelina Jolie in Salt all for the price of a beer, good cheap and real pop-corn, and a home cooked meal? You MPAA people are seriously out of your minds!!! Dinosaurs ready for extinction.

MPAA! You stupid idiots done this to yourselves! I never did this before (not the doin it part; just de rippin it part) Suck it up, and go the way of the gooney bird! You deserve nothing better.

Isn't porn made to be shared ?

Did Hugh Heffner sue dads who didn't prevent their sons from consulting their collection of Playboys ?

Did Hugh Heffner sue teenagers who exchanged the playboys they found in the dad's collection ?

In fairness, the porn industry can't pay their crews if they don't get paid by people who watch the material. Remember, it isn't just the bare naked lady who gets paid, it is also the people who record the moaning and groaning, the sound editors who sometimes succeed in synchronising the moaning and groaning with the girl's mouth/lung movements.

Perhaps the porn producers should buy outfits such as xtube and show their movies for free and collect the advertising revenues.

Or perhaps porn should go all amateur. No more artificial moaning and groaning to dub over the director's instructions to the porn stars.

Blackmail

Blackmail doesn't work with me.... Assuming for a moment that I downloaded a porn movie for me & my "significant other" to watch and they people suddenly tried to file a law suite & threaten to make it all public before court & demand I settle....

I'd make it public before them...

The upload their video (and collective works) on so many sites, irc channels, usenets, and p2p network / sites.... My 1 download would be the lest of their worries.

What's worse?

The fact that the Porn Industry is profiting off of those who are pirating the material. Who does this benefit in the end?

I know, I know, they stole content. But still, a bit sick don't you agree? I mean, really, just take a minute and think about all of those who watch porn (I do not watch porn, don't condone it, but that is a personal choice for those who do) and want to in privacy. Like I said above, I don't condone it but the fact that the Porn Industry is trying to profit off of this really makes me sick to my stomach.

With the vast amounts of free, legal porn of every stripe online I really don't get this.

You can literally go *anywhere* online and get anything you want freely, legally and within full compliance of every IP statute imaginable. They literally stream hours of this stuff everywhere...

Product placement....

The porn industry needs to learn about product placement.

Sex toys, rings, mail order stores etc could all be paying nice sums of money to have their products "featured" in a porn movie, at whicgh point, the producers would encourage as many free downloads as they could since this would increase the amount they can charge to advertisers.

Heck, even doctors could pay to have their names featured:

guy to girl: "I really love what Dr Boobs from Los angeles did to your breasts, they look so much better".

And if this becomes more popular, even beer/booze companies could get product placements ads in porn movies.

Not worth the risk?

When it comes to private sexual fantasies and fetishes, going public is probably not worth the risk that these torrent and peer-to-peer users are taking
Oh no, they are going to reveal that most of the pirated content is male-female straight sex, "lesbian" sex (or some variation of guy(s) with multiple women), or just some woman getting off by herself. If the general public didn't already know this, they need to check their reality batteries again.

I got "caught" once when some friends noticed a video title on my HTPC. They feigned being surprised and like all good friends, tried to thoroughly embarrass me about it. I didn't care. It wasn't like it was midget gay horse bondage porn. And even if it was, an overwhelming majority of people have looked at porn on the internet anyways. Let he who hasn't sinned cast the first stone.
