In this case, the music industry really deserves their royalties.

Suing the porn industry … what could possibly go wrong.

Using the music without permission in their movies and selling those movies fall out of the category of fair use because it is not for personal use but rather for profit, so the music industry has a legitimate complaint…IMO :iagree:

I think their claim of “fair use” due to it being a “reality style” show would be valid if they were filming in some unplanned locations, but they obviously had these clubs rented out, with total control over them (and the sound systems), so it’s logical to think that they consciously picked the music tracks. But who knows, it’s certainly a slippery slope, but it does seem that the music industry might have a valid case here.

Why do I get the feeling, that this all started when a RIAA employee got caught watching porn at work, and then came up with the excuse that he was only looking for copyright infringements?! :stuck_out_tongue:

You gotta admit that if your day job is about watching porn all day, you’d even apply for it at the MPAA/RIAA evil conglomerates. :bigsmile:

I also wonder how much proof the judge and jury wants to see…
