Gay Porn Studio's Second Amnesty Offer

Gay Porn Studio's Second Amnesty Offer

Ten people who have illegally downloaded videos from gay porn studio Corbin Fisher took the company up on its offer to to pay a onetime fee of $1,000 and avoid being sued.

But the company’s general counsel, Marc Randazza, told The Advocate Corbin Fisher is planning to go after some 35,000 people for illegally downloading content through BitTorrent.

So the studio is back with a second amnesty offer. But the price has nearly doubled.

Those who come forward and accept the offer will have to pay a onetime fee of $1,900 — they will not be sued, and they will also receive a one-year subscription to the company’s network of sites.

“One of our DVDs sold 600 units, and on one website alone, it had been downloaded 11,000 times. Something had to be done about it,” Randazza told South Florida Gay News.

Last week Randazza told The Advocate the company is planning to move forward with the lawsuits in a couple of weeks. Last year Corbin Fisher "won millions of dollars in court judgments ... including a recent $250,000 judgment against a single Torrent user," the company said in a statement last week.

The San Diego–based company is doing some good with the money it rakes in — the company just made a $60,000 donation to Equality Florida. It donated the same amount in 2010.
