XXX Site Has A $4 Million Losing Day In Court; Extension Choice Are The Least of Its Woes

According to USAToday, "A judge has ordered the operators of a popular pornographic website to pay $4 million for copyright infringement to an Iowa-based adult film company — a ruling that should serve as a deterrent to others who pirate content online, a lawyer said Monday."

"U.S. District Judge Mark Bennett in Cedar Rapids entered the judgment last week against Mark and Mina Faragalla of Beaumont, Calif., who operated PornVisit.com. He ordered them to pay the maximum damages of $150,000 per infringement to Norwood, Iowa-based FraserSide IP LLC, a subsidiary of Nevada-based adult entertainment company Private Media Group, and to stop stealing its copyrighted works."

"Simply having the word 'million' in a judgment sends a message — it is going to be better to comply with copyright laws than to make money from the work of others," said Phoenix attorney Chad Belville, who represents FraserSide. "The only way online piracy will truly be slowed or stopped is to take the financial incentive away."

The New Porn CEOs: Women Taking the Helm at Sex Companies
Sex-ed Teacher, Lux Alptraum, the new head of Fleshbot, embodies how the Internet is changing the face of the adult industry.


"Lux Alptraum is not your stereotypical adult-industry executive: She’s young, female, queer, Ivy-educated and based in New York. As the newly minted CEO of the porn blog Fleshbot, which until recently was part of the Gawker Media empire, Alptraum is proof of how the Internet is changing the face of the adult business."

"She took “a long and winding road” to this point. In college at Columbia, she discovered the online amateur porn scene, which was exploding at the time. “There were a lot of different people doing things that were really fascinating and intriguing and not standard porn,” she says. Alptraum started modeling and doing cam shows for a site that specialized in “nerdy girls,” but after a year she quit and started her own site, That Strange Girl." MORE
