BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Another 1,106 John Doe defendants were sued Monday by Larry Flynt Publications for allegedly poaching Hustler‘s "This Ain’t Avatar XXX 3D” through BitTorrent networks.

LFP's suit, the second in two days filed at U.S. District Court in Dallas, ratcheted up the number of defendants to 4,226 over those who allegedly downloaded and distributed the movie.

In Monday's suit, LFP's Internet Group said the second wave of defendants used isoHunt.com, KickAssTorrents.com and SeedPeer.com to obtain the video.

LFP is asking a U.S. District judge to give the green light to order the identities of the Does from scores of Internet service providers.

Attorney Evan Stone of Dallas, Texas, who waged the suit on behalf of LFP, told XBIZ that "there were a few different torrents of 'Avatar' and, arguably, defendants should not be joined across multiple torrents in one suit" — a reason for the second suit in two days.

"This Ain’t Avatar XXX 3D,” a spoof on the mainstream movie "Avatar," had a working budget that was three times that of a normal adult feature and has become a blockbuster for the studio. It was released in late September.
