Foursquare Now Lets Businesses 'Oust' Fake Mayors (Sorry, @Arrington)

Porn studios have now started suing filthy pirates. Your days of being able to download Hot Chicks Doing Stuff 4 with impunity are over~!

The first studio to start with the lawsuits, Axel Braun Productions, has gone after 7,098 file-sharers for downloading the movie Batman XXX: A Porn Parody. The movie is distributed by Vivd.

Braun himself told an industry publication:

F~!k ‘em all. People don’t realize that when you pirate a movie it hurts all of the people who work very hard to get it produced–from the cast to the production assistants to the makeup artists… So we are going after every one of them who pirates our content

These types of suits usually work like this: lawyers petition the courts to issue a subpoena against various Internet Service Providers for the name and other information if the IP address they allege to have infringed copyright. Then the lawyers send a sternly written letter to the person, asking he or she to settle out of court. If not, expect to be sued.

What a time to be alive.
