Vivid takes hard line with PornoTube

Commercial pornography producer Vivid is taking the web site PornoTube and its parent company to court for copyright infringement. PornoTube is based on user submitted videos in the same way as YouTube, although the site shows adult-only clips. But Vivid Entertainment, one of the world's largest pornographers, has now filed suit against the site and its owners AEBN claiming copyright infringement. "Upon information and belief, [the] Defendant's business plan depends on the uploading, posting, display and performance or copyrighted audiovisual works belong belonging to Vivid and others," the suit reads.

Are you retarded, living in 1955, or just "ignunt?" If your grammar skills are any indication of your intelligence or abilities, you should probably not go to any web site and should busy yourself getting an education so you can leave "tha" ghetto.
