Why sue online storage services when you can let the adult entertainment industry do the dirty work for you? Perfect 10 – one of the more pro-active adult firms when it comes to copyright infringement – has filed a lawsuit against storage service Megaupload, demanding millions of dollars in damages and costs. The lawsuit pays particular attention to Megaupload’s user rewards scheme, which Perfect 10 says “induces its customers to post content that is likely to be massively downloaded, such as high quality infringing nude images and popular full length movies and songs”. The lawsuit also claims Megaupload is not eligible for DMCA safe harbour protection. For its part, Megaupload is filing a motion to try to dismiss the case, and claims “All infringing files Perfect 10 has ever reported to Mega have been removed within hours”.
