SAN DIEGO — Gay adult studio and distributor Corbin Fisher said Tuesday it will grant amnesty for a limited time to surfers who have been trading its content online.

Corbin Fisher also warned that it is about to launch a new wave of antipiracy lawsuits, targeting BitTorrent users.

“Despite the fact that these people are stealing from us, we wanted to give them a chance to admit their mistakes and move on,” said Brian Dunlap, Corbin Fisher’s COO. “Therefore, we are offering this limited period where we will resolve these cases quickly and cheaply.”

Dunlap said that any individual who has been illegally uploading or downloading Corbin Fisher material can come forward in the 14-day grace period, beginning today and ending Feb. 8., and settle claims for a one-time payment of $1,000.

All those settling will be given a year's membership at Corbin Fisher's premier online adult content sites, AmateurCollegeMen.com and AmateurCollegeSex.com.

Liberty Media Holdings, parent company of Corbin Fisher, said that its strong anti-piracy stance was noteworthy in 2010.

"The company won millions of dollars in court judgments in the past year, including a recent $250,000 judgment against a single torrent user," the company said in a statement.

Corbin Fisher warned that BitTorrent users not taking advantage of the amnesty period will be liable for up to $150,000 in damages for each infringement.

"A list of thousands of torrent users has already been provided to Corbin Fisher by an independent research group, and all of these users will be targeted in the first wave of lawsuits to be filed in February," the company said. "Anyone who has shared Corbin Fisher content via a torrent site is encouraged to contact the company immediately."

Corbin Fisher requests those who wish to apply for the amnesty settlement to send an email to amnesty@corbinfisher.com.
