Hey Gay Teen Porn Pirates: Got $1900? You Can Avoid Being Outed

After its initial amnesty period expired, Corbin Fisher is offering a second round of freedom — with a 90 percent price hike. In an effort to crack down on sharing its films on BitTorrent, the gay porn studio plans to go after so-far-anonymous web users in court. But first it’s offering them a way out, this time with a second amnesty offer that’ll cost $1,900; the first amnesty offer cost $1,000 but came with a free one-year membership to the site (and a promise not to prosecute).

Is this an example of Corbin Fisher and attorney Marc Randazza just being nice? Or has Corbin Fisher and its parent company Liberty Media Holdings realized they might have a huge uphill legal battle after being slapped with a motion to dismiss by a New Jersey electrician who says not only did she never download the porn in question, nor has she ever heard of the company, but the case itself is filed in the wrong district.

(The company says it’s going after a ton of defendants in the South Florida area.)

No stranger to copyright lawsuits, Corbin Fisher and its BitTorrent project threatens to out closeted gay teens (and adults) by naming them in court documents, a fear that has drawn the ire of privacy advocates and, well, Queerty readers. So for the low, low price of $1,900, gay teens can avoid this little dilemma. Will they take cash?
