CANOGA PARK, Calif. — The Free Speech Coalition (FSC) announced yesterday that CorbinFisher.com is its Award of Excellence recipient.

The presentation will take place on Feb 8, at the Cybersocket Awards to be held at Eleven Restaurant and Nightclub, in West Hollywood, Calif.

The FSC Award of Excellence is presented to a GLBT adult industry company that exemplifies ethical business standards and innovative business practices, as well as community activism.

“When Corbin Fisher's founder and CEO Jason Gibson, started this company, he had firm beliefs on what he felt a business should do and be,” Corbin Fisher COO Brian Dunlap said. “Many of us at CF have worked for large corporations – places where you often find yourself thinking, ‘If I was the one with final say, this is how I'd do things...’ Ultimately, he and the rest of us here found ourselves in precisely that position – where we could make the final decisions and shape a company into what we felt it should be.”

Corbin Fisher’s policy for fair and ethical treatment of its models, instituted in 2008, is a role model for many adult studios. The company has also donated to various charities over the years, including a recent donation to GLBT activist group in Florida for $60,000. Corbin Fisher employees are encouraged to donate time and resource to charities and nonprofits, the company said.

“Many of our models have been with us for years, so it only made sense we acknowledge that just as we do with the two dozen full-time employees we have. Many of us also have strong beliefs when it comes to certain philanthropic or social causes, and so it was truly a privilege to be able to have the resources to help causes we feel strongly about,” Dunlap said.

The company has a history of aggressively pursuing content infringers and recently sued an infringing website for use of one of its model’s photos. The case received nationwide attention.

“With regard to piracy, we do feel we not only have the right but the obligation to protect our intellectual property rights and protect the livelihoods and well-being of our employees and their families. Sure, copyright infringement and content theft are inevitable. That does not mean, however, that there's no point in doing anything about them,” Dunlap explained.

“Many people can be dissuaded from engaging in such behavior through effective legal action; real results can be achieved against those infringing upon our rights – and, yes, revenues can be recovered through effective legal action. We work very hard to produce our material and satisfy our fans and members.”

Dunlap went on to say that the company is proud of the receiving the FSC Award of Excellence, pointing out that the principles and practices utilized at Corbin Fisher are commonly shared by other adult industry companies.

“Being presented with FSC's Award of Excellence is a genuine honor. We have a great deal of respect for the Free Speech Coalition and what it does, so recognition from such an organization indeed means a lot to us,” he said.

“We know we're not the only company that has close relationships with its models. We know this industry is full of people who are informed and passionate about a variety of causes. We certainly know we're not the only ones impacted by piracy and content theft and that felt a need to do something about it,” Dunlap added. “Whereas we're being recognized by FSC here and are truly honored by it, we feel this is as much recognition for those principles, as it is for Corbin Fisher.”
