CHICAGO — Flava Works on Friday filed suit against the operator of a pair of defunct websites — HouseIntheHood.com and HypnoThugs.com — claiming he used Flava Works-owned images on his competing websites.

Flava Works in the filing at federal court in Chicago said that Lee A. Momeint Jr., also known as Lee Moment, is alleged to have used the content after his business relationship with the gay adult company.

"He started his business on the backs of Flava Works using our copyrighted images to tempt potential customers to join his websites," Flava Works CEO Phillip Bleicher told XBIZ. "He was terminated in 2005."

Both HouseIntheHood.com and HypnoThugs.com have been offline for some time now, with both starting up in 2007 and winding down in 2009 and 2010, according to an Internet archive search.

Flava Works, which operates FlavaMen.com, ThugBoy.com and CocoDorm.com, among other websites, also distributes DVDs of its content, as well as other forms of media.

According to the complaint, Flava Works said that it owns the copyright to content at the center of the suit, "Thug Boy 1," which was released in 2005.
