David Trice was one of several people who infringed on intellectual property by selling copyrighted adult content to porn fans on eBay. Corbin Fisher successfully sued him for $15,000 in damages for each of the 66 DVDs he sold, and Corbin Fisher is continuing to pursue damages from several other co-defendants in the ongoing eBay piracy ring lawsuit.
AVN reports that Corbin Fisher CEO Brian Dunlap stated:
Mr. Trice faced a potential liability of $9.9 million, but due to his cooperation and contrition in the case, we agreed to reduce our claim by a factor of 10.” [Fellow co-defendant Eric] Brown has been a lot less cooperative, so we don’t plan to take it easy on him.
SD City Beat reports that Corbin Fisher’s legal weapon is the Digitial Millennium Copyright Act, “1998 federal legislation that lays out the remedies for electronic copyright theft.” This ruling comes just weeks after Corbin Fisher sued porn star Jake Lyons, along with the escort site Men4RentNow, for $1 million after the 19-year-old performer violated his contract by uploading Corbin Fisher stills to his personal escort profile.
The sum in that Jake Lyons lawsuit struck me as a bit egregious, considering that the co-defendant is a cute little teenage porn star, but I’m all for going after the low-life DVD bootleggers. Nobody can blow a creamy lawsuit facial quite like Corbin Fisher, and with the onslaught of shady adult content pirates across the globe, somebody’s got to do it. What’s more, the San Diego-based studio just won the Free Speech Coalition Award of Excellence after donating $60,000 to gay rights organization Equality Florida.
So sue away Corbin. Also, sorry for stealing the above image from your website.
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.
