The Best Case For Porn Not Being Art

"We the people protect you from pirates. Except porn pirates. Because porn is awesome."

So, a woman who is being accused of pirating porn through BitTorrent, has created a pretty intense legal defense.

The main point being: Porn is incapable of being copyrighted.

Here’s an excerpt:

According to Wong, this means that copyright laws for movies only have constitutional validity where they cover “useful Arts”, and she believes the work of Hard Drive does not come under this category. Indeed, she not only labels the work obscene, but says that by paying people to perform sexual acts in return for money, the studio is in fact committing several criminal offenses relating to prostitution.

Basically, she’s saying that since porn isn’t ART, it can’t be copyrighted, and thus, should be able to be traded freely and with no consequence.

Talk about a double-sided dildo. On one hand, trading porn without repercussion sounds great. But on the other hand, once you claim that films, etc., aren’t art, where does it stop?

Stupid old Constitution. I can’t believe they haven’t upgraded that thing in 223 years.

Here’s the full story.
