The mass-copyright lawsuits brought against anonymous BitTorrent users by porn companies in the past few years have run into legal hurdles. One of the lawyers representing Third Degree Films, which makes movies like Illegal Ass 2, was found not to be licensed. In another case, a New York federal judge blasted  Malibu Media (maker of Veronica Wet Orgasm and Gangbanged) for an "astonishing" failure to follow discovery rules.

At the end of the day, though, it's all about getting the names. Once the lawyers prosecuting these cases can get names of people who they can level their accusations against, they know at least a percentage are going to pay up. It's telling that the sweet spot for mass-copyright suits is pornography; it strongly suggests a strategy of deterring defendants from fighting cases by embarrassing them.

Most questions have already been addressed in the forums, get yourself educated before making decisions.

Any advice is strictly that, and anything I may state is based on my opinions, and observations.

Given that a former director of the CIA lost his job at least partly, if I recall correctly, over having porn images on his laptop's hard drive... and given that our most recent CIA director lost his job over an affair with at least one woman who was NOT his blushing bride of decades, I think it's high time for American Males to stop being embarrassed over testosterone-driven urges.

Shoot, I'd be a lot more embarrassed for being identified in our local newspaper for reading aloud Linda Ellis's stupid and sappy "Dash" poem at a funeral than I would be if a porn troll named me for downloading a copy of "Nude MILFs Eating French Toast with Honey and Sugar."

In fact, at my age, it might even be empowering to be named in the local paper as a guy who enjoyed looking at images of naked ladies! Who knows what kind of new friends such publicity might engender?!?

Note: This post was NOT approved by Mrs. Mulligan, and if she sees it there will be no more French toast breakfasts on Sundays around here for months!
