Porn producers strike back at video pirates, filing 12 federal lawsuits in Sacramento

Now that the courts and the nation have come to know Stormy Daniels, it may be time to become familiar with Strike 3 Holdings LLC, which bills itself as “the owner of award winning, critically acclaimed adult motion pictures” that draw 20 million visitors to its websites every month.

Strike 3 Holdings also is a victim of widespread copyright infringement, the company alleges, and on Monday filed a dozen lawsuits in federal court in Sacramento seeking damages against individuals in Citrus Heights, Carmichael and other areas in the region, part of a nationwide legal fight involving hundreds of lawsuits nationwide.

The lawsuits target “John Doe” internet subscribers identified only by their internet protocol addresses and seek penalties against individuals suspected of using a high-tech downloading system known as “BitTorrent” to connect to other computers and “simultaneously download and upload piece of the file from and to other users.”

“Defendant is, in a word, stealing these works on a grand scale,” the lawsuits claim. “Using the BitTorrent protocol, defendant is committing rampant and wholesale copyright infringement by downloading Strike 3’s motion pictures as well as distributing them to others.”
