CNBC Says "Mike South - South is the Nikki Finke of the porn industry. His blog, which is never short on opinion, is a must-read among industry insiders. His style is unique, but he is also a leading agent of change within the industry. There are few fence-sitters when it comes to opinions about South, but no one ignores him."

Digital Playground Plagiarizing MainStream Films Like Coyote Ugly

I decided to see what Digital playground has been up to under the direction of the new management, a guy who calls himself Jako Dema, Real name Demetrios Kokozos. He replaced Scott Justice there.

The latest movie they put out is “Champagne Showers” , so I gave it a look. The production values are nowhere near what the old DP was but what really got my attention is that it is a direct ripoff of “Coyote Ugly”. Not a parody mind you but an almost word for word plagiarization. They took lines directly from the movie and even had the stupidity to name the bar “Coyote Ugly”.

I hope they have deep pockets over there because if the copyright holders of “Coyote Ugly” Jerry Bruckheimer Films and Touchstone Pictures see this they wont be happy.

This isn’t the first time Since Manwin took over that they have plagiarized a movie either, There is a movie called “Shay Leather and Lace” that plagiarized a short called “The Darjeeling Express” verbatim. It copied the dialogue word for word. There are other movies too I am told.
