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."

Fabian Thylmann is Porn Enemy Number One

I stepped back a bit from the whole condom thing and started thinking about who or what has done the most damage to Porn Valley.  Now right now if you ask people they will tell ya that its AHF, Michael Weinstein, that condom legislation.  Of course that isn’t what they were saying just a few months ago.  Then it was piracy.  AVN even did an article on it in the July edition and all the porners they asked agreed piracy was the biggest problem they faced.  One person, Dan from Girlfriends Films thought it was condom legislation.

But the truth is they were right, piracy has decimated the industry like nothing else, that is and should be porn enemy number ONE.

   Take a look at the gaping asshole to the left.  That is the face of modern piracy.  His name, as most of you know, is Fabian Thylmann and the company he runs, Manwin, owns eight of the ten largest piracy tube sites in the world.  He and the company he manages have done more to decimate Porn Valley than a hundred Michael Weinsteins.  Even to this day he continues to make pirated content available for free via his tube sites and the owners of the content like Marie Madison are summarily ignored when they ask him to remove it or DMCA him.

In her own words: (In a Thread from Xbiz.net )

“Okay I’ve had it.  Fabian you siad you aren’t into dealing with stolen content.  But you have tons of my content.  You have no legal issue to use it.  You and My hotbooks.com are using content that you have no right too.  No matter how many DMCA’s   I send or have other verified people send you DMCA’s you continually use it.  I have eamiled you directly Fabian with no reply.  You are using content that you have NO RIGHT TOO, yet you continually use my content.  So step up Fabian, you either license it legally or put a stop to piracy;  You  claim you don’t deal in stlolen content.  Yet no matter how many DMCA notices I send or have other’s send on my behalf you still pedal my content.

If you want my content then deal with me.  Not just put it up;  Fuck you and your “I do not deal in stolen content anymore”  you do!   You are showing my content with no rights to it.  So many others are kissing your ass.   Im sick of you and your given attitude that you can take whatever content you want without permission.  You have ruined this industry, by taking what is not YOURS.  The rest of you can kiss Fabian/Manwins ass.  But until he actually steps up and actually pays for content he does not own he can kiss my ass.

Fabian you are the reason this industry is in disarray. You claim you aren’t into illegal content but ye you continually use content you have no right too. You got screeners from my distributor and turned it down for licensing. Now, all of my content is all over your sites. You dont respond to my DMCA requests, and if you do it is for only a day or two. Step up Fabian/Manwin and do what is right.”

There are an awful lot of people who are finally waking up to the fact that this ass pimple is a scourge on the industry, but it may be too little too late.  Manwin has bought up much of the industry in “fire sale” conditions.  He has also bought the FSC.  Diane Duke who was not long ago whoring for money using the mantra piracy is destroying us is now the hand puppet of of Fabian Thylmann.

So when you look at your bottom line and its in shambles compared to what it was five or six years ago, remember to thank this guy for making that happen, this particular dick is so diseased with lying and corruption that a whole box of condoms won’t protect the industry.  And there’s not a fucking thing you can do about it.
