The internet is for gay porn…

… or so it seems for British lawyer firm Davenport Lyons, which has been sending letters on behalf of German gay porn makers to obtain payment from people who download their films through P2P and Torrent sites. But not only are individuals being accused of copyright infringement, stock photography sites are also pursuing small and medium enterprises for disproportionate amounts.

Some firms are fighting the charges, as they are often going to the wrong people. However, one has to wonder at the brilliant tactic used by obscure porn producers, who obtain much better dividends by making their film available on torrent sites, and then sue those who download it (or seem to download it).

Here is to hoping that someone will stand up to the bullies and they will get a black-eye in court.
