Record labels sue pornindustry

Record labels in the US have taken a break from worries about poor album sales and illegal downloads to set their sights on the lucrative adult entertainment industry.

Eleven major record labels, including Warner Bros. and Atlantic Records, have filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Reality Kings, the “World’s Best Reality Porn Website.”

The lawsuit alleges that RK Netmedia’s videos feature adult actors in nightclubs engaging in sexually explicit acts while lip-synching popular songs by artists such as Justin Timberlake, Michael Jackson, and Katy Perry.

Tunes like Sexyback, Don’t Stop (Till You Get Enough), and I Kissed a Girl fit in thematically (and somewhat hilariously) with the subject material.

The record labels cite over 500 instances of “deliberate and calculated” copyright infringement on RK Netmedia’s websites that’s causing “enormous and irreparable harm” and want $150,000 for each violation—damages could be worth tens of millions of dollars.

RK’s attorney Marc Randazza argues, “If you’re going to film in a live night club, you’re going to absorb some of the ambient sounds. You are going to hear what the DJ is playing, and if someone can tell me how to shoot at a nightclub and police out the music in the background, I’m all ears.”
