Strike 3 Holdings LLC, a company that distributes adult films through the subscription-based websites Blacked, Vixen, and Tushy, filed 572 cases since December 1, 2018.
Strike 3 Holdings LLC has alleged that New Jersey residents illegally downloaded their adult content without the proper licensing fees, most likely using file-sharing software such as BitTorrent. A recent article from New Jersey 101.5 states:
“Hundreds of New Jersey residents are being sued in what some say is a shakedown scheme by Strike 3 Holdings LLC. They’re the owner of adult sites like Tushy and Vixen.
What companies like this do (they’re not the first) is locate alleged porn pirates on BitTorrent then file thousands of lawsuits demanding damages of at least $150,000 each. They don’t actually expect that nor do they actually want to go to court. What they hope for according to defense attorneys is to scare people so badly and more so embarrass people who are in relationships that these people will settle.
How big will they settle? Obviously it tends to depend on what they have at stake. If it’s a single person and just a copyright issue they might not settle at all. And that’s often where it will end. If it’s a married person whose partner would disapprove of the extracurricular viewing they’ve been known to settle for as much as $20,000.”
