Porn Studio Files Suit Against Over 1,000 Pirates

By - Source: Tom's Guide US | B 50 comments

A California Porn studio has filed a lawsuit against more than 1,000 people it believes have pirated one of its movies.

Third World Media, a Los Angeles, California-based porn studio has filed a lawsuit against 1,568 individuals it believes are guilty of pirating the title Miss Big Ass Brazil #4. Though the plaintiffs have yet to be named, though the studio has apparently armed itself with their IP addresses, Internet service providers and the dates and times they shared the file.

The news comes two weeks after the studio filed another lawsuit against an additional 1,243 defendants and it seems the studio isn't stopping there. CNet reports that TWM is filing more lawsuits in courts around the country and is expected to file more in the future.  

The next step for Third World Media is to subpoena ISPs to have the identities of the accused revealed.

    however you have to trust people on those websites like
    rapidshare, megaupload, hotfile, netload, fileserve

    remember kazaa, files named one thing, but were something completely different?

    for porn i say stream it, anything legal and worth watching is streamable. and if you want to keep it, learn to rip the stream

    They make "sharing" sound like such a bad thing...

    Didn't their mothers ever tell them to share their toys? *cough* I mean porn?

    Miss Big Ass Brazil... at least is not Miss Jungle! Got love when your country appears on the news like this. Talking about that, have you heard about an unofficial Borat sequence, "My Brother, Borat!" filmed in Kazakhstan?

    YouPorn is shit. I don't know if you still like to view pixelled low quality teen stuff with laggy streams.

    I better download quality 1080p porn instead and roll the dice for getting sued.

    If they get me I'm lucky and start to play the lottery because then I'll certainly win some millions.
