`
`
`INTRODUCTION
`
`Piracy of copyrighted and trademarked works is a multi-billion dollar, global industry of
`
`
`
`theft. The piracy of legal adult entertainment is the training ground for all other forms of online
`
`piracy – audio books, television shows, digital music files, and general release Hollywood
`
`movies.
`
` USA Today wrote,
`
`“Online
`
`porn
`
`often
`
`leads
`
`high-tech way”
`
`http://www.usatoday.com/money/industries/technology/2004-03-09-onlineporn_x.htm and it is a
`
`fact that pornography lead the technological advances and mass acceptance of VHS, DVD’s, the
`
`growth of the Internet, streaming video, online advertising, online payment processing, and
`
`downloads. Online piracy of pornography has lead the way for piracy of more mainstream
`
`copyrighted works; it has provided a roadmap at a significant cost to the legitimate and legal
`
`adult and mainstream entertainment industries. The pirates of pornography train like
`
`professional sports players before a big game; they are masterful at their craft and execute with
`
`precision. They diligently find ways to hide assets and identities while exploiting weaknesses in
`
`their prey. Piracy such as that committed by Defendants is committed only for profit; no party
`
`engages in piracy out of any feeling of philanthropic responsibility or to further constitutional
`
`free expression. The Rand Institute’s 2009 publication Film, Piracy, Organized Crime, and
`
`Terrorism determined that “Piracy is high in payoff – with profit margins greater than those of
`
`illegal narcotics – and low in risk often taking place under the radar of law enforcement. In
`
`addition, terrorist groups have in some cases used the proceeds of film piracy to finance their
`
`activities. Besides being a threat to the global information economy, counterfeiting threatens
`
`public
`
`safety
`
`and
`
`national
`
`security.”

`

`

`
`
`
`
`Piracy is not a victimless crime and piracy of legal adult materials leads to greater
`
`occurrences of piracy across all other forms of online intellectual property. It is against this
`
`backdrop that the following Complaint is respectfully submitted to the Court.
`

`
` FraserSide IP LLC, an Iowa Limited Liability Company, is the rightful
`
`trademark, copyright, and intellectual property owner and/or successor in interest of the United
`
`States trademarks, copyrights, and intellectual property that is the basis for this action. The
`
`parent company Private Media Group Inc., a Nevada company (PRVT on NASDAQ), is one of
`
`the world’s leading producers of high quality brand driven adult motion picture films.
`
`Fraserside, commonly and commercially known as “Private”, has been producing legal adult
`
`entertainment since 1968, from print magazines and movie reels to VHS to DVD to online digital
`
`download and streaming. In 2010, Private shipped over 400 orders to Iowa residents and

`delivered nearly 2000 online to Iowa customers. Fraserside’s' highly sought after intellectual
`
`property is distributed on a wide range of platforms including mobile handsets via 104 network
`
`operators in 45 countries, digital TV via 38 platforms in 24 countries, broadband Internet,
`
`television broadcasting including its own South American cable channel in a venture with world

`
`properties. Fraserside has protected its trade names such as PRIVATE, PRIVATE GOLD,
`
`PIRATE and THE PRIVATE LIFE OF through United States trademark and service mark
`
`registrations and its films through United States copyright registration. Beginning in 1975,
`
`Fraserside further protected its intellectual property through registration in more than 25
`
`countries including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Denmark, Europe, France, Germany, Hong
`
`Kong, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Norway, New Zealand, Panama, Philippines, Poland, South

`
`
`

`

`
`
`other audio visual works. Plaintiffs expend significant amounts of time, money and other
`
`resources to produce high quality products, develop supply chains and distribution systems, and
`
`build premium brand recognition of their products.

`
`Plaintiffs, either directly or through their affiliates or licensees, distribute their
`
`copyrighted works in various forms, without limitation, over the Internet, pay-per-view, video on
`
`demand, digital video discs (DVD’s), and other formats, by selling them directly or indirectly to
`
`the home viewing market or licensing others to do so. Plaintiffs also distribute their copyrighted
`
`works, without limitation, through Internet streaming and download services.
`
`
`
`Plaintiffs have registered with the United States Copyright Office their copyrighted
`
`works identified in the paragraphs below. Plaintiffs have taken industry standard steps to
`
`identify their products, including placing recorded warnings at the beginning and end of video
`
`productions that appear whenever those videos are played.

`
`
`
`732, Westchester, CA 90045
`
`18.
`
`Defendants does business as XHamster.com and operates the website
`
`
`
`XHamster.com [hereinafter XHamster]
`
`
`
`Case 3:11-cv-03025-MWB Document 2 Filed 05/23/11 Page 7 of 49
`
`
`
`

`

`
`
`
`
`19. Defendant XHamster competes against Plaintiff in the distribution and sale of
`
`adults-only audio-visual works through Internet distribution.
`
`20. Upon information and belief, Plaintiff avers that each Defendant, individually,
`
`
`
`corporately, jointly and/or severally, acted intentionally, knowingly, negligently or through
`
`willful blindness, as an agent, or representative of each and every, all and singular, the other
`
`Defendants, and acted to further the ends of the illegal and improper purposes alleged herein in a
`
`common course or scheme to infringe on the Plaintiff’s copyrighted intellectual property for
`
`illegal profit and monetary gain.
`
`
`
`STATEMENT OF FACTS
`
`21.
`
`Upon information and belief, XHamster.com is a website that provides adult-
`
`
`
`
`
`oriented audio-visual content to the general public without request for age-verification.
`
`22. Upon information and belief, the XHamster.com website is visited by over 64
`
`
`
`million internet surfers per month. [See Attachment 1 Compete.com results with estimates and
`
`public details]. Upon information and belief, Alexa, a website rating service, ranks
`
`XHamster.com as the #55 most visited website in the world. [See Attachment 2 Alexa Ranking].
`
`For comparison purposes only, Google.com and Facebook.com are ranked 1 and 2, respectively.
`
`Sites with more traffic than the Defendant per Alexa include LinkedIn at #16, Microsoft at # 28,
`
`Apple at # 37 and CNN.com at # 47. Websites that have less traffic than the Defendant include
`
`such widely known entities as GoDaddy.com (67), New York Times (85), NetFlix (95), Fox
`
`Case 3:11-cv-03025-MWB Document 2 Filed 05/23/11 Page 8 of 49
`
`
`
`

`

`
`
`News (175), Wall Street Journal (212), and Defendant even has much more traffic than
`
`WalMart.com, with an Alexa ranking of 288. Defendant is arguably one of the most visited
`
`websites in the world, reaching more web users every day than WalMart.com. These enormous
`
`numbers of visitors result in Plaintiff’s copyrighted works being viewed tens or even hundreds of
`
`thousands of times on Defendant’s website. Defendant proudly displays the number of instances
`
`in which a particular piece of media has been played on its website as number of “views”. The
`
`number of Iowa-based views per month will be determined during discovery.
`
`23.
`
`Copyright law states that any material that is "reproduced, performed, publicly
`
`
`
`displayed, or made into a derivative work without permission" is an illegal violation of the rights
`
`of the copyright owner. By its definition each view constitutes a separate and distinct instance of
`
`infringement that is produced on a viewer’s computer. Plaintiff's intellectual property has been
`
`viewed over 1,000,000 times, available for months and for some videos, years, on Defendant’s
`
`website. With the enormous amount of internet users on Defendant’s website, the number of
`
`uncompensated views grows daily thus furthering the number of copyright infringements and
`
`contributing to the further dilution of the Plaintiff's trade and service marks.
`
`24. Upon information and belief, Defendant pays third parties to send web users, also
`
`
`
`known as traffic, to Defendant’s website. Defendant currently pays third parties $2.00 (two
`
`dollars) for every one thousand (1,000) unique visitors sent to Defendant’s website [See
`
`Attachment 3, XHamster’s Partnership Program web page]. The Defendant previously paid only
`
`$1.00 per one thousand unique visitors, but increased the payment to third parties in 2011.
`
`
`
`Case 3:11-cv-03025-MWB Document 2 Filed 05/23/11 Page 9 of 49
`
`
`
`

`

`
`
`
`
`25. Upon information and belief, Defendant allows third parties to display Plaintiff's
`
`intellectual property to third parties on third party websites for the purpose of driving traffic back
`
`to XHamster. The number of views displayed on XHamster does not reflect the number of views
`
`on those sites. This significantly increases the number of views. This number grows daily thus
`
`furthering the number of copyright infringements and contributing to the further dilution of the
`
`Plaintiff's trade and service marks.
`
`26.
`
`Upon information and belief, a large portion of videos available on the websites
`
`
`
`appear to be copyrighted videos that, upon information and belief, are not owned by Defendant
`
`but are owned by well-known and long-established members of the adult –oriented audio -visual
`
`entertainment industry.
`
`27.
`
`Plaintiff owns the worldwide rights to its extensive archive of high-quality
`
`
`
`content and also licenses its trademarks internationally for a select range of luxury consumer
`
`products.
`
`28.
`
`Plaintiff has dedicated significant resources to create, distribute, and protect its
`
`
`
`works. In addition, Plaintiff dedicates resources to be in compliance with applicable laws in
`
`order to protect the integrity of their works and the overall adult entertainment industry.
`
`29.
`
`The viability and profitability of Plaintiff is based upon monies and revenue
`
`
`
`earned from Plaintiff’s intellectual property, including copyrights in Plaintiff’s films.
`
`
`
`Case 3:11-cv-03025-MWB Document 2 Filed 05/23/11 Page 10 of 49
`
`
`
`

`

`
`
`
`
`30.
`
`The Internet, in conjunction with recent significant advances in technology,
`
`hardware and software, has resulted in the availability of effective means for circumventing the
`
`intellectual property ownership rights in nearly every industry, including adult entertainment.
`
`The pervasive and intense online infringement is nearly crippling the adult entertainment
`
`industry, providing unfettered, unregulated, free access to copyrighted works originally produced
`
`by reputable businesses and persons.
`
`31.
`
`Upon information and belief, these infringers are without any accountability to
`
`
`
`governmental requirements or regulations, without any actual investment in the creation of the
`
`works, and without any commitment to the vision of the future of the industry. Nonetheless,
`
`these infringers utilize, display, and distribute copyrighted works for which they have no right or
`
`proper license for their own commercial and significant financial benefit. These actions have
`
`caused and continue to cause significant damage to the business and reputation of the true
`
`copyright owners.
`
`32.
`
`Upon information and belief, Infringers, such as Defendant through the website
`
`
`
`XHamster, have taken advantage of the existence of legitimate Web sites that properly facilitate
`
`the exchange of user-generated content. Defendant XHamster is truly a subscription
`
`membership web site hiding behind the veneer of a simple user-generated content exchange site.
`
`Defendant XHamster sells premium memberships to its website and pays third parties to send
`
`traffic to its websites like a membership website. Defendant’s XHamster.com website is
`
`designed for the sole purpose of taking commercial advantage of copyrighted works without any
`
`authority whatsoever and derive benefit from the copyrighted works. This significant
`
`Case 3:11-cv-03025-MWB Document 2 Filed 05/23/11 Page 11 of 49
`
`
`
`

`

`
`
`commercial and financial advantage is obtained without purchasing or licensing any rights from
`
`the copyright holder nor incurring the significant expense of creating and generating the content
`
`itself.
`
`
`
`33.
`
`Upon information and belief, Defendant’s business model of using unauthorized
`
`works without compensation has significantly contributed to the ability of Defendant to become
`
`one of the most visited websites in the world. Defendant offers unauthorized content for free
`
`that legitimate competitors must pay for, with extraordinary results. Defendant then sells
`
`premium access to unauthorized content with more extraordinary results. An illegitimate
`
`business model where the cost of goods sold is zero will be able to drive out legitimate
`
`competitors.
`
`34.
`
`Upon information and belief, Defendant has created, owns, and/or operates the
`
`
`
`Internet Web site www.XHamster.com. In concert with the Doe Defendants, Defendant
`
`XHamster uses this site to display and distribute Plaintiff’s films, among others, to Internet
`
`Users. Defendant XHamster and the Doe Defendants each know, or have reason to know, that
`
`there is no proper license or authority to display and distribute Plaintiff’s films on Defendant’s
`
`website and no proper license or authority to or obtain commercial financial gain from such
`
`display and distribution. Defendants use the website XHamster to gather a vast and extensive
`
`collection of infringed films to display and distribute. The website is a one-stop shop for
`
`infringing material. Most, if not all, a very large portion of the content indexed on or available
`
`on the website is infringing, unauthorized copyrighted content, including Plaintiff’s copyrighted
`
`works. The fundamental purpose of the website is to capitalize on the illegal dissemination and
`
`contribute to the illegal dissemination of infringing works. This display and distribution provides
`
`Case 3:11-cv-03025-MWB Document 2 Filed 05/23/11 Page 12 of 49
`
`
`
`

`

`
`
`Defendant XHamster with significant monthly revenues, and hinders Plaintiff’s rightful ability to
`
`derive financial benefits from their own films.
`
`35.
`
`Upon information and belief, the display and distribution of Plaintiff’s films are
`
`
`
`accompanied by advertisements that generate Defendant XHamster significant annual revenue.
`
`Advertisers purchase ad space on certain pages and in certain locations on XHamster.com due to
`
`the known or estimated Internet traffic that views the particular page or location. The volume of
`
`Internet traffic on such page or location is directly attributable to the quality of content displayed
`
`and distributed. Thus, the quality of Plaintiff’s films is directly responsible for the revenue
`
`generated by the sale of ad space on Defendant’s website.
`
`36.
`
`Upon information and belief, the commercial financial benefit and deception
`
`
`
`regarding the purpose of Defendant’s website is not limited to the large revenues generated
`
`through sale of third party advertising space. As opposed to legitimate user generated content
`
`exchange sites, Defendant’s website induces the Internet user to pay subscription fees.
`
`37.
`
`Upon information and belief, XHamster does not initially allow users to view
`
`
`
`high quality versions of Plaintiff’s films or download Plaintiff’s film to the user’s computer,
`
`although a significant portion is displayed and distributed. If the Internet user wishes to view the
`
`film in High Definition, or download the video, the user is presented this the option by becoming
`
`a Premium Member. The website user is presented with three (3) Premium Membership choices,
`
`(1) a $2.95 trial membership that automatically becomes a recurring membership if the user does
`
`not cancel, a one (1) month Premium Membership for $29.95 or (3) a three month Premium
`
`Case 3:11-cv-03025-MWB Document 2 Filed 05/23/11 Page 13 of 49
`
`
`
`

`

`
`
`Membership for $19.98 per month. Upon information and belief, this Paid Premium
`
`Membership allows the website user to download the unauthorized and uncompensated
`
`copyrighted work belonging to Plaintiff, allowing Defendant to commercially benefit from
`
`Plaintiff’s work without any benefit to Plaintiff.
`
`38.
`
`Upon information and belief, the Internet user, initially lead to believe that
`
`
`
`Defendant’s website is a completely free viewing site, is presented with paid options to enhance
`
`the viewing experience of unauthorized works owned by Plaintiff. The user is permitted to
`
`download the films only with further financial benefit to Defendant. Defendants give away
`
`unauthorized viewing of Plaintiff’s property then sell unauthorized copies of Plaintiff’s property
`
`without any benefit to Plaintiff.
`
`39.
`
`Upon information and belief, Plaintiff’s copyrighted works have been and
`
`
`
`continue to be infringed by Defendant and the Doe Defendants through the reproduction,
`
`distribution, and public display of Plaintiff’s films by and through the Internet Web site
`
`XHamster for which Defendant owns the domain registrations and to which Defendant and the
`
`Doe Defendants, stakeholders of the site, provide essential equipment and support.
`
`40.
`
`Upon information and belief, the high volume of Internet traffic generated at
`
`
`
`Defendant’s website is due to the option Internet users are presented in viewing the infringed
`
`content for free, rather than obtaining the viewing rights legally and knowingly paying for such
`
`rights.
`
`
`
`Case 3:11-cv-03025-MWB Document 2 Filed 05/23/11 Page 14 of 49
`
`
`
`

`

`
`
`
`
`41.
`
`On or about April 2011, an initial search of Defendant’s website revealed and
`
`documented over 73 separate instances of copyright infringement of Plaintiff’s copyrighted and
`
`trademarked intellectual property. As of the date of this Complaint, a total of 73 instances of
`
`infringement, identified by name and registration number in the following paragraphs, were
`
`documented as being displayed and distributed on XHamster.com. Each of these films were
`
`displayed and distributed by Defendant and the Doe Defendants, each individually and acting in
`
`concert with each other, without the consent of, or licensing by, Fraserside, the copyright owner
`
`and registrant of the motion picture.
`
`42.
`
`Plaintiff marks each film with a copyright notice and trademark in order to inform
`
`
`
`the public of Plaintiff’s ownership. Upon information and belief Defendant has altered
`
`Plaintiff’s films in that these notices and marks have been removed. Defendants intentionally
`
`delete, blur or obscure Plaintiff’s watermarks and logos from Plaintiff’s videos displayed on
`
`Defendants’ website, causing consumers to be confused as to the origin of the audio-video
`
`content. The manipulation of identifying marks is also evidence of knowledge and intent to
`
`infringe Plaintiff’s intellectual property rights.
`
`43.
`
` Upon information and belief, Defendant has actual knowledge and clear notice of
`
`
`
`this extensive infringement of Plaintiff’s titles. The infringement is clear and obvious even to the
`
`most naïve observer. In fact, Plaintiff’s films are displayed and distributed on XHamster through
`
`Defendant and the Doe Defendants acting in concert. Plaintiff’s and other major producers’
`
`trademarks are used to index infringing material along with obfuscation of watermarks and other
`
`identifiers which is evidence of knowledge and intent.

`
`By virtue of the conduct alleged herein, Defendants knowingly promote,
`
`
`
`participate in, facilitate, assist, enable, materially contribute to, encourage, and induce copyright
`
`and trademark infringement, and thereby have infringed, secondarily infringed, and induced
`
`infringement by others, the copyrights and trademarks in Plaintiff’s copyrighted work, including
