The 5 Funniest Porn Titles Involved in BitTorrent Piracy Lawsuits – Seattle News – The Daily Weekly

leave a comment »

One of the central figures in this week’s feature story–“Porn, Piracy, and BitTorrent”–is John Doe #2,057, an anonymous Seattle man accused of illegally downloading the film Tokyo Cougar Creampies. Doe is adamant that he is innocent–he left his Wi-Fi network open, plus he’s legally blind, which makes it nearly impossible to watch movies, hardcore porn included–but he agreed to pay a settlement worth several thousand dollars to the attorneys who sued him just to make the case go away. He was worried that if he fought back in court, his real name would be eventually be divulged, forever linking him with the ridiculous and raunchy title. But a bit of research reveals that Tokyo Cougar Creampies is relatively tame compared to some other porn flicks that have prompted mass lawsuits against cyber-pirates.

As explained in our story, the copyright lawyers filing the mass John Doe lawsuits often bank on the fact that accused pirates will be shamed into quickly paying up by virtue of the ignominious porn titles involved.
