You want to end the sharing of copyrighted porn? Sue only those who share gay porn. Shaming works really well.

Actually, that's been a tactic some real scumbags have used to extort people. You probably weren't the one who downloaded "Jizz-Filled Barely Legal Asian Cum Dumpsters 17", but they bank on you being willing to pay a few hundred bucks to not have your name on a list of people who might have.

They will likely never see any of that money. At this point, they may as well have told him to pay out $9 Billion...it is just as ludicrous.

Fine. Throw us under the bus. Be that way. See if I invite you to one of my future fabulous parties. Okay, you can still come. But you can't enjoy any of my delicious self cooked food. Oh, alright, you can eat a bit. But no dessert!

Thugboy movies got old after the fourth Thugboy. From then on it was just recycled material.

It's expected that the verdict will be used to motivate other BitTorrent defendants to settle their cases.

Only if they're stupid enough to share their original copies with the unique IDs still embedded in them.

And they follow the Star Trek format. Only the Even numbered ones are good. Thugboy II: Fists of Fury is the seminal entry in the series.

I started that one evening, but I hadn't seen the first one so I really couldn't follow the story.

I really don't understand how a company can sue a person when a company (e.g., bank) can't be held criminally liable for defrauding billions of dollars. Our justice system is f'd

ZAZ: He had a paid account at one point so I'm betting they can squeeze a little blood out of that stone.


Well considering he used that paid account to download their content and then proceeded to share it with the rest of the world they actually have a leg to stand on, instead of the usual "But but we have your IP address from your ISP that shows you downloaded it!" cases. The company doing the suing embedded an individual code that is specific to the account holder. That's actually a pretty brilliant tactic. Can't say I'm a fan of it though. If more sites do what they did, there will end up with less porn on torrents, and fewer uploads to streaming sites.

Slaves2Darkness: How about this, how about you don't be a thief? Guy got what he deserved.


You're probably trolling , but a real thief stealing the physical copies of these movies would be charged with petty theft, paid a small fine, and have to do some community service. This guy is being charged
1.5 million dollars. If you can't see the difference you are slightly retarded.

The clear solution is to do everything as a Maryland Corporation held as a trust by a Bolivian Corporation that you own via a Nevada corporation who's only contact info goes to an Indian call center that refers callers to another corporation in Lithuania. That way you're hidden behind 5 proxy corporations.

That series really went down hill after number 8.

FTA: "The huge total was reached through penalties of $150,000 per movie, the maximum possible statutory damages under U.S. copyright law. It's expected that the verdict will be used to motivate other BitTorrent defendants to settle their cases."

This is our justice system. Hope you like it, because it's never going to change.

In the interest of accuracy, I had a peek at Westlaw and discovered that the fine film in question is actually "Thug Boy 9 - All About The Dick." (NSFW or Klan meetings)

And the companion piece, "Mixxed Nuts 4."
