The U.S. porn industry full of racketeering scandal

Five American pornographic production studios are on the dock. They are accused of extorting money from Internet users who downloaded their movies illegally.

The studios have complained so wanted to do themselves justice, but by using the passage. To find people who looted their property, they hired more people to "locate IP addresses associated with the use of a file-sharing software like BitTorrent. "


From this information, they could file a complaint against illegal downloading for their pornographic content. This then allowed them to get their hands on the identities of Internet users fault.


Arrangements can be made ...

They then personally called each of them. After some threats, they proposed an arrangement from 1500 to 5000 dollars which guaranteed that the user would not be prosecuted.

"The purveyors of pornography have developed a new business model using the legal system to extort money from people who are simply identified by their IP addresses and without any evidence that they have downloaded content protected by copyright of author, "says the complaint against the five studios.

They actually used the fear of Internet users. They have downloaded or not, they were embarrassed to find themselves involved in a public download pornographic content. The pay was so simple solution. 20 000 people would be affected by the actions of these unscrupulous studios.
