RIP OFF: Will Men.com Be Sued For Copying A Mainstream Hollywood Movie?

Posted May 6, 2014 by with 6 comments

DisconnectMOUK12Normally when a gay porn studio releases something that’s a clear and obvious parody or re-interpretation of a mainstream movie or celebrity, the title is tweaked to reflect the spoof, (e.g., Jersey Score, Bustin’ Beeber, Twinklight, etc.). Apparently, Men.com didn’t see fit to make any changes to the title of their latest series, Disconnect.

Part one of Disconnect stars Paul Walker, who plays a reporter seeking to interview a cam model (played by newcomer McKensie Cross). Of course, that interview leads to a much more intimate relationship…

While it wasn’t a box office hit, Hollywood released a non-gay porn movie last year also called Disconnect. In it, there are several intersecting storylines, including one where a reporter seeks to interview a cam model. And of course, that interview leads to a much more intimate relationship. I have to admit, I’ll take the gay porn version over this mess any day (Paul Walker’s cock is bigger than the budget of this entire movie, tbh):

The next installments of Men.com’s Disconnect may or may not match the other storylines in Disconnect, but this first one is a blatant and obvious theft.

DisconnectMOUK13Will the producers of the mainstream Disconnect sue Men.com for copying their movie? I mean, Men.com even ripped off the font in their promo image! Then again, if they do try to sue, they’ll probably lose. Remember, Michael Lucas prevailed when La Dolce Vita producers tried to sue him for copyright infringement.

    If you haven’t seen the mainstream Disconnect, I highly recommend it; it was surprisingly good. Max Thierio is super hot as the cam4-like cam show boy.

    lol at the name McKensie. It might be a guy’s name in the UK, but it’s definitely a girl’s name here in the US. And every time I hear that name, I think of this bitch!

    did someone say Cheerios?

  • doubt the straight one would want to bother cause it would just give the porn free publicity

    I’m sure Men will be receiving a cease and desist letter but there’s no way a major studio would bother taking them to court. There’s no way they could recoup enough damages to make it worth the time and expense. Not to mention that most large studios don’t want their name sharing a Variety headline with a porn studio.

    The key in all these cases is: will sales of the original be affected? The answer is no, it’s an online-only porn scene and not a feature film. I don’t see this going anywhere.
