Titan Sues Gay Tube Sites Operator

AVN :: Titan Sues Gay Tube Sites Operator
SAN FRANCISCO - IO Group Inc., the parent company of Titan Media, has filed a $2.7 million copyright-infringement lawsuit against British company GLBT Ltd., parent of gay video-sharing sites GayForIt, ItsAllGay and JerkYourTube.

The lawsuit, filed Aug. 11 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, alleges GLBT Ltd. and 25 unknown others intentionally and vicariously infringed Titan copyrights, induced others to infringe Titan copyrights, violated Titan's trademark rights and misappropriated Titan's right of publicity. In addition, the suit alleges GLBT Ltd. engaged in unfair business practices under the laws of the state of California because the site does not adhere to the labeling requirements outlined in 18 USC §2257.

According to Titan vice president Keith Webb, GayForIt is GLBT Ltd.'s main site.
