Command Cinema Sues Infringers

(HOUSTON, TX) -- Classic porn powerhouse Command Cinema filed suit last week against the alleged operators of two websites, classicpornbox.com and megaclassicporn.com, for alleged copyright infringement after video files of five Command titles were discovered being sold from those locations.

The suit, filed May 10 in a Texas District Court, targets the websites and alleged owner-operators Floyd Edward Hodges, Ray Reiter and Pinnacle Entertainment as defendants. It claims that five titles, Babylon Pink, Foxtrot, Dangerous Stuff, Neon nights and Platinum Paradise, were found being exploited on both sites, available via download for a fee.

Cecil Howard, the legendary producer/director behind the Command library, said, "Those are some of my best known and most beloved titles. It hurts. So much work and financial investment went into producing these movies and Iíve worked hard to protect their integrity in every way. It really gets my goat that people are profiting from the investment of time and money I made."

The alleged infringement came to Howardís attention, he said, when he received a call from the studio team at HotMovies.com, currently the only legally licensed distributor for the entirety of the Command library. In turn, HotMovies had been alerted by Eric Green from Removeyourcontent as part of an ongoing strategic partnership between the two companies.

"I know HotMovies makes every effort to ensure the original producer or holder of rights for every movie on their site is properly compensated," said Green when approached for comment. "Our job is to help protect those same businesses from website operators who donít have the same type of scruples. Iím glad for Howardís sake that we found these guys."

Once the files were discovered, Green said they were purchased to ensure that, in fact, the movies being advertised were the same ones being sold. In each instance, he asserted, this was found to be the case. At that point representatives from HotMovies and Removeyourcontent discussed the situation and decided to approach Howard with an offer to help finance a legal battle to protect his titles from piracy.

Howard is being represented in this matter by copyright attorney Evan Stone (not to be confused with the eponymous porn star) of Denton, Texas. No court date has been set as of press time.

The HotMovies studio team can be reached at 1-800-611-Movie.
