Usenet Provider Giganews Sues Perfect 10 For Fraud, Demands $20m

In a prolonged legal action over copyright, Usenet provider Giganews retaliated against adult publisher Perfect 10 and beat it through every step of the legal system. Now Perfect 10 owes Giganews $5.6m, but the publisher hasn't paid up. That's prompted a new $20 million lawsuit from Giganews which alleges serial acts of fraud.

For many years, Perfect 10 went about its business of publishing images of women in print and on the Internet. At some point along the way, however, the company decided that threatening to sue online service providers was more profitable.

Claiming copyright infringement, Perfect 10 took on a number of giants including Google, Amazon, Mastercard, and Visa, not to mention hosting providers such as LeaseWeb and OVH.

With dollar signs in mind, Perfect 10 went after another pretty big fish in 2011. The publisher claimed that Usenet provider Giganews was responsible when its users uploaded Perfect 10 images to the newsgroups. Things did not go well.
