Paola Rey unmasks website owner

Gram Ponante
Like many people in the adult world, tasty Brazilian Paola Rey has been the victim of porn's version of identity theft; her domain name was swiped before she thought to claim it herself. While this happens more frequently on the hated MySpace, at least in that forum it's fairly easy to take a site down.

Everyone from Lynn LeMay to Lexington Steele to, well, just about every porn star you know has had his/her brush with uprooting a squatter.

Rey hired an attorney and a private detective, she wrote in The Erotic Review, to track down the squatter on ClubPaolaRey.com, and it turns out to be Keith O'Connor, dismissed principal of Defiance Pictures.

She writes:

After hiring a lawyer and a private dectective, we found out that Keith O'Connor is the person behind the ClubPaolaRey.com and other illegal sites. The company he worked for, Defiance Films, has fired him and responded to our lawyer's (Edward Hayes) inquiry about the site and they informed us that Keith had been using unauthorized material. He also had lied to them saying that all of the porn stars he had sites for were sharing in the revenue.

ClubPaolaRey.com is now redirected to another porn star's site which, needless to say, is owned by Mr. O'Connor.

Keith O'Connor has served time for fraud in the past, while living in NJ. In my opinion, it doesn't seem like he learned his lesson. According to my lawyer, if convicted again, he might be looking at several years in prison. I just hope that he is aware of the consequences and take further action in shutting down the official fake site completely nor using the same domain name to be redirected to another site.

I cannot comment on these events other than to say that, without fail, every article I ghostwrite for adult trade publications involves parties that are wanted by the law.
