Adult entertainer Ron Jeremy has waged a war against Internet websites who broadcast porn movies without permission.
The X-rated star can’t understand why sites like YouPorn and PornTube escape punishment for showing full-length adult films without authorisation – because no online organisation would dare broadcast a mainstream Hollywood movie without consent, for fear of the consequences.
So Jeremy is battling to eradicate this double-standard and win the porn industry “the same respect” as the mainstream movie business, and he’s starting by offering his full backing to an adult production company – Vivid Entertainment – that is taking YouPorn and PornTube to court over unauthorised transmissions of their films.
“What harms the industry is the Internet. Before it was helpful. Every company had its own website,” he sayts. “Now you have things like YouPorn and PornTube that show full-length features of Vivid’s movies. Who the f**k do they think they are? Now Vivid is suing them. You wouldn’t see YouTube play a full-length feature of a Steven Spielberg film. But they think that it’s just porn so they can get away with it. So now Vivid is striking back. Piracy is piracy, whether the film is PG, R or X. We deserve the same respect.”
