PIMPING POLITICS: Porn Studio Asks Judge to Ban Talk about “Copyleft” Blogs at Trial

Complaints about “copyright trolls?” Well, Malibu Media says you’re a “freetard.”

Prenda Law is gone, and today it’s a legit porno company, Malibu Media, that files more copyright lawsuits than anyone else. Malibu sues thousands of people for downloading the company’s content via BitTorrent, then asks for settlements reportedly in the several-thousand-dollarrange.

The antics of Malibu and other “copyright trolls” are often documented on two pseudonymous troll-fighting blogs, FightCopyrightTrolls and DieTrollDie.

“I don’t feel offended in any way,” SJD wrote. “On the contrary, I regard this motion as a form of flattery and confirmation that my humble effort was not in vain. FCT is an opinion blog, and as such my writings are inadmissible hearsay anyway.”

The Malibu Media v. Harrison lawsuit (PDF), filed in 2012, accuses Harrison of downloading a motion picture called “Pretty Back Door Baby.” Trial is scheduled for the end of August.

The motion was pointed out yesterday by an anti-troll critic on Twitter.
