Third World Media

The adult entertainment biz takes a page from the RIAA, MPAA playbooks

Downloading a hit song or Hollywood movie from BitTorrent might become
an expensive mistake if you find yourself targeted in a lawsuit, but
downloading an adult video might become an expensive and embarrassing
mistake.

That, at least, is what Third World Media is hoping. As CNET News.com
has reported, the California-based adult entertainment studio is filing
suits around the country against John Doe defendants who the studio
alleges illegally downloaded its content through file sharing networks
like BitTorrent. If the courts permit, those John Does will be unmasked
by their ISPs, subjecting them to more than just legal headaches.
