Porn studio offers “amnesty” if file-sharers turn themselves in.

[newsimage]http://static.rankone.nl/images_posts/2011/01/IC1Y2C.jpg[/newsimage]Lately, we’ve been seeing several porn-producing movie studios using mass copyright infringement lawsuits in an attempt to get money from alleged file-sharers. One studio, however, is taking a bit of a different approach by giving illegal file-sharers a chance to turn themselves in and pay a reduced fine before a lawsuit is filed.

Unlimited gay porn for $1000 … I’m sure that some will be tempted.

Of course, the $1000 will only cover whatever download violations have happened so far …

Or in other words, another extortion scheme, where they don’t care whether or not people are actually guilty, since they don’t have ample evidence.

ZZZZZzzzzzz! :wink:

I never knew porn movies were longer then 10 or 20 minutes. Wow.

Wonder if you can work off the debt?? :slight_smile:

The new American business. You get a group together, get laws passed that provide massive fines for relatively minor incidents. Then you use the courts to hold the hammer over people’s heads with threats until you have your way with them. This is the only country in the world where someone can shoplift a bag full of CDs or DVDs and that is a $100.00 fine, but if you share a file you are bankrupt.

So make a cheezy product, release it on P2P anonymously, hire a professional snitch company to ID file sharers and get rich without even demonstrating that you could possible sell enough product to make as much as the court is going to hand over.

Tools not provided … so you will need to bring your own HARD WARE …

Do you have to turn yourself in? I mean wouldn’t it be enough if you just expose yourself?

How about returning the files, no strings attached.

The 'new" American business is to sue people for their money? I thought that has always been in the American culture? :slight_smile:
