FSC All-Star Anti-Piracy Video: Would You Steal From Ron Jeremy?

Diane Duke

We did something that’s never been done before – we got a bunch of adult performers together and asked them to send a message about illegal downloading. Free content and illegal downloads are having a devastating effect on the adult industry, as well as the music industry (see Jack Black’s “Don’t be a Douche” PSA) and every other form of revenue-driven digital entertainment.

At more than 650,000 views on YouTube, we know we touched a nerve.

The YouTube comments from people that like to illegally download ranged from negative to downright NSFW – but we also would like to hear from folks that have a ideas for better business models or constructive suggestions. We know you’re out there and we know that you like hot porn stars.

Most of the people in the adult industry are just making a living.  Most of the adult performers really like their fans, and they enjoy making the videos that the viewers want to watch – billions and billions of you that enjoy watching (whether you want to admit it or not)… so, don’t be a hater. We’re asking nice. -jc
