Brazzers Owner Awarded $36.5m in ‘YesPornPlease’ Copyright Lawsuit


In February 2020, MG Premium, part of the Mindgeek adult empire, sued unlicensed porn ‘tube’ site YesPornPlease and affiliate VShare.io. Both platforms soon went offline but after more than two years of legal proceedings, a court has now awarded MG Premium $36.5 million in copyright damages. It claimed to have lost more than $727 million.

MG Premium, part of the Mindgeek adult empire, had been homing in piracy platforms YesPornPlease.com and VShare.io for some time.

In 2019 the Brazzers owner obtained a DMCA subpoena requiring Cloudflare to hand over the personal details of the sites’ owners. In January 2020, YesPornPlease had around 100 million visitors per month (SimilarWeb stats) so any information would’ve been useful to MG Premium.

Sources within unlicensed adult site circles soon indicated that Cloudflare had little to offer but according to MG, the sites infringed its copyrights on a grand scale so something needed to be done about them.
