MIAMI — In an apparent settlement of a case that levied copyright infringement claims, short-lived tube site FapZap.com has been taken over by the operators of DancingBear.com.

GRHK LLC, operators of DancingBear, had been seeking the identities of FapZap's operators in a letter to its hosting service Choopa and filed with the federal court in Miami.

In the letter to Choopa in August, GRHK said that it had become aware of 18 videos on FapZap that were poached and streamed on the tube site, including such titles as "Dancing Bear — Crazy Party Girls," "Dancing Bear — Fucking in the Club" and "Dancing Bear — Dick Dick Goose."

"[W]e request that Choopa remove or disable access to the attached claimed infringing material as soon as practical after receipt of this notification," the letter said.

Two days after serving Choopa with the letter, the case against FapZap was terminated and now FapZap.com redirects to DancingBear.com.

On Wednesday, the attorney of record for GRHK in the claim, Marc Randazza, would not confirm nor deny terms of an apparent settlement to XBIZ.

FapZap, according to archived pages, claimed to be "one of the world's largest free porn tube resources"; it currently ranks No. 22,371 on Alexa. The site had been operable as a tube site for less than a year, and it is unclear who owned the site.

DancingBear, also known as "Tale of the Dancing Bear," features stripping bachelorette party sex; its Alexa ranking is No. 3,202.
