Strike 3 Holdings LLC produces adult films under Tushy, Vixen, and Blacked.

Over the past few years, Strike 3 Holdings has sued thousands of people across the US for copyright infringement, accusing people of downloading their films through peer-to-peer file sharing services such as BitTorrent without the appropriate licensing.

According to a recent article by Bloomberg, pornography producers such as Strike 3 Holdings are accounting for the lion’s share of all copyright infringement lawsuits in the US… and judges may have had it with the practice.

The article states:

“The courts are cracking down on porn vendors that file thousands of lawsuits against people for downloading and trading racy films on home computers, using tactics a judge called a “high tech shakedown.”

It goes on to say:

“Two companies that make and sell porn are responsible for almost half of the 3,404 copyright lawsuits filed in the U.S. in the first seven months of this year, according to an analysis by Bloomberg Law’s Tommy Shen. Malibu Media LLC, which distributes such titles as “Stunning Sexy Shower,” has filed some 8,000 lawsuits nationwide since 2012. Strike 3 Holdings LLC, operator of such sites as “Tushy” and “Vixen,” has filed about 3,500 lawsuits in just the past two years, according to Bloomberg Law dockets.

The companies say they are protecting their movies from piracy and infringement under U.S. copyright law, as major movie studios have done for decades, and suggest that the content of their films is the reason for the wrath of the judges. But some of the tactics used in their infringement suits to identify targets and force settlements have critics — and some jurists — up in arms and may require congressional actions to fix.”
