Porn producer promises to disclose names of Internet users who download movies illegally

Like it or not, pornography is still one of the most talked about subjects on the internet. More than that, this market faced a severe crisis with the growth of the web and the unauthorized copy of thousands of films, placed in full in the online universe, every day.

However, whoever has the constant custom of downloading videos of this nature, be warned: according to the site BoingBoing, the US movie producer Hard Drive Productions, tracked the IP addresses of users who illegally downloaded movies via Torrent. The company promises to identify each one of those responsible for the respective computers and prosecute them for piracy.

The accused Internet users will have two options to escape the courts: they either spend a lot of money on a lawsuit, or they publicly admit that they have made illegal downloads and enjoy watching porn on the web.

So far, 1,495 defendants have been charged, all of whom are legally required to disclose their names. If users remain anonymous, the company says it will still disclose all people’s data. The Electronic Frontier Foundation, which specializes in defending the rights of Internet users, has already asked Justice to reconsider the decision.

Corynne McSherry, director of Intellectual Property at EFF, says that all American citizens have the First Amendment right. For this reason, the accused may instead appeal to the court to demand anonymity in the investigations. Another EFF employee, Mitch Stollz, stressed that Hard Drive is “looking to take advantage” of the situation of Internet users.

The process judges must be positioned until the end of the month.
