The GFY Thread: “AVN supporting Piracy, that’s pretty sad!”

Pornnewz writes on GFY: Piracy. It is quite possibly the biggest problem facing our industry today. Sure, the current state of our economy has a significant impact on our bottom line, but who can honestly say that they haven’t seen their profits slip since the dawn of the tube site? You would think that such a huge problem would be met by a unified front to combat this prolific, money-depleting scourge. However, one of the adult industry’s most influential companies is supporting this out-of-control racket. That company is AVN.

AVN, the self-proclaimed “Industry Standard”, has licensed their well-known name out to a company called And because nobody knows who “Etology” is, they gladly run part of their operation using the name “AVN Ads” — with AVN’s full blessing.

Sure, they aren’t the only ones who are doing it, but someone as well-known as AVN tacitly endorsing piracy raises this problem to a whole new level.

Who is being affected by this? Well, here are a few examples complete with screen shots:

There’s a site called, they are a site in AVN Ads’ directory:
