BlazingBucks Sues 2,925 in Porn BitTorrent Suit
Rhett Pardon
CHICAGO — BlazingBucks' parent company filed suit against 2,925 BitTorrent users Wednesday for trading its content.

The suit, waged by Lake Forest, Calif.-based OpenMind Solutions, points the finger at the alleged pirates named as John Does in the suit and asks the court to identify them through their ISPs. It does not include specific titles that were pirated.

Mark, co-owner of Blazing Bucks, told XBIZ that the content the pirates stole could be among more than 2,000 scenes the company owns. And it's not the first time he's waged a suit.

"I have been using counsel [to identify and sue pirates] for the past three or four months," Mark said. "So far, I'm satisfied. First, because it provides another avenue of monetization, and secondly, because it is a proactive stance against piracy."

The suit was filed at U.S. District Court in Chicago by attorney John Steele.
