MindGeek Wins $32m in Damages from Adult Pirate Site Daftsex.com
Popular adult entertainment site DaftSex will soon lose its domain name. MindGeek defeated the pirate site in court and also secured more than $32 million in damages. The verdict comes after the court previously denied a broad injunction that required hosting and CDN providers to take action as well.
Adult entertainment conglomerate MindGeek owns several of the largest ‘free’ tube sites including Pornhub.
In the early days, these sites thrived on pirated content but over time, that changed. Today, MindGeek itself is of the most protective copyright holders in the industry.
MindGeek subsidiary MG Premium, for example, has many thousands of works registered at the US Copyright Office. To prevent these videos from being shared online without permission, the company regularly takes legal action.
