Porn producers sue South Korean pirates Japanese porn producers have sued 10,000 South Korean Internet users this week over breach of copyright for their part in uploading copywritten adult films to sites and P2P networks.
The lawsuit was filed in Seoul and the Gyeonggi province however National Police Agency spokesmen refused comment.

"Police will look into the case to see whether there was any breach of the law before deciding whether to initiate criminal probes against them,"
added a police officer, off the record, via the AP.

The lawsuits claim the distribution of the porn is "very harmful to juveniles," and should be stopped.

"We selected about 10,000 user IDs that earned financial benefits from habitually uploading pornography on websites,"
added an unnamed official.

The porn producers are looking for financial damages.

"We selected about 10,000 user IDs that earned financial benefits from habitually uploading pornography on websites"

10,000 users were habitualy uploading for profit? That's insane, who would pay for internet porn? There are about a hundred-thousand free sites filled with porn, and they were making money?

"The lawsuits claim the distribution of the porn is "very harmful to juveniles," and should be stopped."
-One could make the same argument about non-copywrited porn. In fact, I would think that commercialy made porno would be better for kids (real porn studios don't do beastiality, rape, and incest porns).

Agreed.. tho from some of the Jav things I have seen they have some issues *grins* Now I'm not going to say anything about the German and South American things that are professionally churned out...

there was somebody called Wurmknight up until a few months ago who was releasing unregistered hentai series.. he was taken down and hasn't come back.. which is rotten seeing as this stuff is never approved for release in the UK because of the content.

The Japanese are used to screwing the Koreans - they did it during enough wars so why not continue commercially what they can no longer get away with militarily ?
People in the west only see the nice smiling helpful faces and shy looking kiddies etc always bowing on TV and so think that Japan is such a polite dignified nation.
They should go over there for a 4 week holiday to get their eyes opened - they are the rudest , most ignorant , xenophobic and self-obsessed monsters on the planet.Their porn production reveals how twisted sado-masochistic and psychotic the majority of them are - torture , degradadation and underage rape of schoolgirls by middle aged pervs are the flavours of the month in their porn industry.
It is one very sick country.
