LAS VEGAS — U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro has added more requirements in her order to freeze Oron's assets.

Last week, Navarro's temporary restraining order against file-locker site Oron.com effectively froze all U.S. assets of the company.

In amended court papers entered today, Oron parent company FF Magnat Ltd., owner Maxim Bochenko (aka Roman Romanov) and 500 John Does are subject to additional restraints.

Defendants have been ordered to restore and preserve evidence that could be "reasonably calculated" in the dispute. The court specifically noted in its order Oron's communications with Network Solutions, Yahoo, Google, CCBill, AlertPay and other accounts.

"Defendants shall restore any business records that they have been deleted since the time that negotiations between plaintiff and defendants commenced on May 30, 2012," the latest order said.

Gay adult studio Corbin Fisher's $34.8 million copyright infringement suit alleges Oron and other defendants had knowledge of and induced the trading of pirated porn on its site.  

Navarro's order last week placed bank accounts held by defendants until a hearing slated for July 3. PayPal, AlertPay and CCBill were ordered to freeze the accounts; VeriSign also had been ordered to freeze the Oron.com domain name from any transfers.

At the same time, Corbin Fisher served Oron in Hong Kong with an injunction prohibiting disposal of assets in Hong Kong. In the Hong Kong order, Oron operators have been enjoined from disposing or diminishing in value of its assets up to $3 million.

In the suit filed at U.S. District Court in Las Vegas, Corbin Fisher seeks impoundment of infringing content and damages, as well as attorneys fees.


Bochenko was served with the civil action and TRO on Friday evening at 6:30 p.m. at his Jacksonville, Fla., townhome in the Villages of Summer Lakes community.
