    Default Gayforit.com tube site lawsuit update

    http://www.xbiz.com/news/137329
    The long-running $29 million lawsuit waged by Channel One Releasing, Corbin Fisher and Titan Media against tube site operators Steven and David Compton has taken a turn.

    The three gay adult studios, which teamed up in an infringement suit against the Comptons for poached content on JerkYourTube.com, GayForIt.com and ItsAllGay.com, have filed a motion for terminating sanctions for spoliation of evidence.

    "What this means is that the defendants have admitted that they destroyed key evidence in this case," attorney Marc Randazza, who represents Corbin Fisher, told XBIZ. "The extent of the destruction was so great that it seems likely that the court will simply grant a default in the case to the plaintiffs."

    The Comptons, according to a court filing, allegedly destroyed emails, video files and other documents and had continued refusal "ad nauseum" to provide access to 1.8 million records in their database during the discovery process.

    ....

    If the judge rules for a default, Randazza said that he and attorney Gill Sperlein, who represents Titan Media, plan on an aggressive move against the tube sites' business partners.

    "[W]e fully expect to begin a collection campaign which will include taking action against anyone who did business with these infringers, because you can't view any of these websites without knowing full well that they are a clearinghouse for stolen content," Randazza said.

    So, they admitted in court that they destroyed evidence?

    Even though I think Marc Randazza is a poor excuse for a human being. And that the people at Corbin Fisher are just as bad with their normal targets for lawsuits, its actually a good thing to see the source being targeted for once.

    I'm happy to see Channel One and Titan Media setting a good example by going after the source, which will actually make a difference. I really hope everything turns out well for you guys and that you are granted a judgement in your favor.

    "The Comptons also contend in their responses that they can't be sued in the U.S. because it is an "inconvenient forum" because they operate as an U.K.-based company."
    There is no way this excuse it going to fly!

    I'm going to need a very big bag of popcorn for this movie.

    I might even splurge for a box of DooDads.

    Going to be fun watching them go down. And yes... There are a few business partners that I'd like to see go down, too. Keep it up, Keith. We're all in your corner.

    Yep! In video taped depositions they admit that they destroyed every single email they have ever received. So, there are no records of DMCA take down notices, no records of take downs requests, no records of repeat infringers, no records of anything! And this was all after they were repeatedly put on legal notice not to destroy anything as it is potential evidence.

    They also said that they "accidentally" destroyed a laptop containing all their email records by punching it. They were so mad over our lawsuit they say they punched their laptop and destroyed it, and all their email records along with it.

    They also claim they don't know who does their CC processing, what bank does their CC processing.... they just get checks from some bank and they don't know which bank. Seriously??? You are raking in $100k/month and you don't know who or where you get the money from??

    They are not fooling anyone......and they are not going to get away with it.
