Piracy

+ - And Now Porn Maker Sues 7,098 Alleged Pirates->

Submitted by suraj.sun
suraj.sun (1348507) writes "Axel Braun Productions filed the complaint Friday in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia, alleging that the defendants illegally shared the adult film "Batman XXX: A Porn Parody."

"F--- 'em all," Braun told Xbiz. "People don't realize that when you pirate a movie it hurts all of the people who work very hard to get it produced--from the cast to the production assistants to the makeup artists...So we are going after every one of them who pirates our content."

The law firm of Dunlap, Grubb & Weaver resurrected the practice ( http://news.cnet.com/8301-31001_3-20018004-261.html ) of suing individuals for copyright violations. The firm began filing complaints earlier this year on behalf of independent film studios.

Several lawyers, including Ken Ford, who represents Braun in the "Batman" case, have adopted a similar strategy to Dunlap's and have filed suits on behalf of adult-filmmakers such as Third World Media and Larry Flynt, the founder of Hustler.
