Supreme court refuses porno piracy appeal

December 3, 2007

Supreme court denies porno piracy appealThe highest echelon of the U.S. justice system, the Supreme Court, refused to take an appeal case brought by pornographic publishing group Perfect 10 Inc.; Perfect 10 was bringing lawsuits against major credit institutions that provided services for known piracy websites on grounds that those credit institutions were aiding in online piracy of Perfect 10′s pornographic content.

Perfect 10 Inc., responsible for the website Perfect10.com, alleges most accurately that online piracy of its published content hurts its business. However, Perfect 10 Inc. is looking to put a hurting on the companies that provide online credit services to piracy websites.

Some of those groups targeted include Google.com Inc., Amazon.com Inc, Mastercard Inc. and the Visa International Service Organization, according to The Washington Post. Both the Mastercard and Visa lawsuits have been thrown out, while Google and Amazon are still in the crosshairs.

In regards to the Supreme Court appeal, CCBill LLC and CWIE were accused by Perfect 10 of enabling copyright enfringement by providing services to websites that partook in the piracy.

Not surprisingly, the appeal was ineffective on the grounds that the credit providers were protected by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and the Communications Decency Act.

Frankly, the validity of claims like these between pornographers and creditors leave me both humored and disgusted; if there ever comes a time when a court can hold a creditor responsible for the actions of its patrons, this country will need more than economic rehabilitation.

If you can hold Google, Amazon, Visa and Mastercard responsible for piracy, then you can hold Comcast, Verizon, and every other ISP responsible; why not take it further and bring suits against Apple, Dell, and Gateway for making machines that enable piracy? At this rate, shouldn’t Benjamin Franklin’s relatives be held liable for any association with electricity?

That doesn’t mean everyone will stop trying to hold whoever they can liable for piracy. Unfortunately, piracy and theft aren’t going anywhere; don’t blame anyone but the pirates and thieves.
