Private’s Fraserside Holdings Sues Meta Interfaces, LLC for Copyright and Trademark Infringement

BARCELONA, Spain — Fraserside Holdings Limited, a Private Media Group Company filed a Federal lawsuit in the U.S. District Court against Meta Interfaces, LLC, on Friday, August 13, 2010.

Fraserside is claiming that Meta Interfaces has committed unlawful acts of copyright infringement of its movie titles and trademark infringement of its world famous PRIVATE brand in more than 250 instances. Fraserside is seeking maximum statutory damages of $150,000 per infringement.

At a June 2010 White House press conference, U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden unveiled the Administration’s strategic plan to combat intellectual property enforcement.

“Piracy is theft. Clean and simple,” he said at the time.

“It’s smash-and-grab. No different than smashing the window of Tiffany’s and grabbing what’s in the window. Intellectual property is no different.”

Private Media Group, Inc., Chairman and CEO Berth Milton [pictured], said: “We agree with U.S. Vice President Biden, Piracy is theft. Private has been producing and distributing high quality adult entertainment to adults for over 40 years.

“Similar to the music industry which successfully went after sites like Napster for unlawful copyright infringement, we are targeting companies, such as Meta Interfaces, that have allowed anyone with an Internet connection to view Private movies for free while also realizing substantial financial profits by doing so. We are going to set a new benchmark for zero tolerance in the adult industry among companies looking to commit these criminal acts.”

Private Media Group, Inc., CFO Johan Gillborg, added: “We will continue to aggressively protect our intellectual property and legitimate licensees. If you steal a DVD at a store and get caught there are consequences; the Internet should not be treated any differently. To be clear, Private is in the fight against piracy especially among the largest perpetrators’ of this crime and this is one in a list of infringement cases we have planned to file. A Private executive attempted to discuss the situation with Meta Interfaces and was met with expletives. Meta deserves this lawsuit; their actions are criminal.”
