Adult Movie Lawyer Lost the Appeal

Adult Movie Lawyer Lost the Appeal

An attorney working on behalf of a porn studio, which was using the legal system to squeeze cash out of BitTorrent file-sharers, has finally lost the appeal against sanctions. Mick Haig Productions believed that it was onto a nice little earner when filing 670 John Doe complaints against uses of P2P networks.

The adult movie company had a cunning plan of suing anonymous file-sharers for allegedly downloading adult content illegally in order to use the powers of the court to disclose their identity. After this the company was going to shame or intimidate the users into settling for thousands of dollars.

Despite the fact that this tactic had been used in other legal cases, it seems to be fast running out of steam, especially in the cases where adult movies are involved. The lower courts felt that the legal process wasn’t serving the interests of justice. The matter is that even if the defendants were innocent they were more likely to pay the amount the adult moviemaker asked for instead of facing the embarrassment of going to court.

After the lower court sanctioned Mick Haig’s attorney for such behavior, he appealed, but today these sanctions received affirmation of 5th Circuit.

The Recording Industry versus the People claimed that the appeals court deplored the movie studio’s strategy of suing anonymous file-sharers for allegedly downloading adult content illegally through the powers of the court to reveal their identity. As it was said above, the plaintiffs then prefer to shame or intimidate file-sharers into settling for bunch of cash.

Now it looks like the porn industry will have to come up with another plan to target illegal file-sharers.

No avatarI read an article on ET months ago were some one was getting sued over similar crap and it stated in the post that you can only claim copy right infringement on anything that's educational, and porn is far from that. and that explains y the porn studio lost.

and if you can't claim copy right on anything that's not educational y does the riaa and mpaa continue to pursue piracy? as music and movies are far from educational as well.

Embolism avatarAnything that has copyrights for intellectual property from picture art to motion pictures and music can if you do not have permission to distribute and do not own said materials get you fined or imprisoned for infringement of copyrights.
The fact that people upload at the same time as downloading means that by sharing a file they are distributing property they do not own or have a legal right to,I do not understand where the rule applies to educational materials since most EDU material have open copyright in most countries and so no legal penalties for sharing those,I would`ve put my hands up and claimed the porn was in fact educational materials for my 15 year old but that after checking them out found them to be to lame for him since the scripts were written by Basil Brush .

Embolism avatarUsing video download helper in firefox you can not only connect to dozens of porn sites for free, but you can also download 1000`s of free porn avi`s without any concern for the copyright protection used by the movie companies since unless there is a copyright notice on home cams and amateur released porn it is implied that it is free to the end user.

Embolism avatarInstead of waging war on online filesharing it should be encouraged and ISP`s should pay for it ,after all a small proportion of the already made billions per year in subscriptions by us the end user will not overtly damage their profits and decriminalize filesharing allowing for more people to watch cams and then go to the cinema to watch the decent films out there.

trolleater avatarmost people would not spend 5000 dollars in a lifetime on porn, and they are trying to make people pay, this is extortion, I would bet they dont even have 5000 dollars invested in the production of the movie, unless you count their cocaine expenses... Thanks again for the good read SAM.
