The Orlando Sentinel reports that Corbin Fisher is demanding that men4rentnow remove the 7 trademarked photos in addition to paying $150,000 in damages for each photo uploaded to the site. Other gay porn blogs posting this story are mistaken in reporting that 19-year-old Jake Lyons is at the center of the federal suit; while Jake is named in the papers, he is in fact not the defendant. It’s the escort site, men4rentnow, who is being ordered to pay the egregious sum. The escort site released a statement this morning:
Individual advertisers directly upload and post all of their own content and photos. Wintice Group does not post any content or photographs. Wintice is very mindful and respectful of intellectual property rights…
What makes this story so absurd is that every escort site out there is overflowing with trademarked studio pictures. Posting official studio stills has long been the primary way porn star escorts brand themselves on rentboy sites. Also: $1 million? Wut? Did someone throw up on someone’s nice carpet or something?
Here’s a look at Jake Lyons before he gets fucked a bunch in Jet Set’s Pizza Boy Gangbang:
It's an interview with Phillip Aubrey: porn star, Spencer Reed's boyfriend, burp fetishist.
The COLT superstars joined a protest in Rome against the Catholic Church in order to make the claim that gay people are not pedophiles. There was a chihuaha involved.
I feel sorry for people with fetishes that can never be realized in real life. Take this Flickr user, who has to make do with his giants fetish using Photoshop.
I'm not one for bragging about intellectual accomplishments (it's something I learned from, you know, graduating with honors from Brown University), but Conner Habib is justifiably excited about his blurb in a book written by Carl Sagan's son.
