LOS ANGELES — Former adult star Devinn Lane has dropped numerous adult entertainment and digital media companies from a lawsuit that claimed they profited from domain names similar to her performer name.

In numerous recent filings with the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, Lane dismissed claims against Vivid Entertainment Group, Digital Playground, Domains by Proxy, Dotster and Moniker Online Services.

Lane, whose real name is Cherilyn McCarver, did keep alive, however, claims against Privacy Protect and Pixel.

Privacy Protect allegedly owns DevinnLaneCash.com, while Pixel, a Hawaii company, allegedly owns Devinn-Lane.com.

Lane, who was awarded a trademark to her name in 2002, has performed in more than 70 films since her debut in 1999. She also has directed about 17 videos, including five volumes of adult-themed “The Devinn Lane Show,” and has produced two adult films.

In addition, Lane was a Wicked contract star and has hosted shows on Playboy TV and has been featured in softcore adult films for Cinemax, as well as a mainstream movie, “The Girl Next Door.”

With the trademark infringement and cybersquatting charges, Lane is asking for injunctions over the use of the domain names and actual damages that include potential treble damages, as well as attorneys fees.
