Porn maker sues porn site

By on

The creators of PornoTube, a YouTube-type site dedicated to pornography, have been sued by US pornographic film studio Vivid Entertainment for copyright infringement, allowing users to post videos from its films.

Describing itself as “one of the leading producers of lawful adult-oriented, sexually explicit content in the world”, the company has filed an affidavit in Central District Court of California against AEBN, a Video on Demand service (from a Google Search), where PornoTube is owned and is operated in South Carolina.

Vivid has filed 9 separate complaints for against the site, ranging from copyright infringement to misappropriation of the right of publicity and unfair business practices.

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Vivid is seeking US$150,000 for each infringed work, a first of its kind.
