Record Labels Come Together, Sue Porn Site

7/10/2010 12:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Don't Stop (Til You Get Enough)," "SexyBack" and "I Kissed a Girl" could easily be mistaken for porn titles, not popular songs -- instead they are just the center of a major lawsuit involving music and porn.

0710_reality_kings_GETTY_REG2
Warner Bros., Eleketra, Atlantic, Bad Boy and others have filed a lawsuit against RK Netmedia and RealityKings.com (NSFW!!!!) ... claiming the websites use their music as the soundtrack -- and sometimes even the inspiration -- for porn videos.

According to the lawsuit, the songs are often playing in the background while "models or actors are 'performing' their scenes." Sometimes, according to the suit, "the performers 'lip-sync' the lyrics of a song while engaged in intercourse or other sexual activity."

On some occasions, the record labels claim, the titles of the videos are derived from the songs they use -- like "Bringing Sexy Back" uses Justin Timberlake's "SexyBack."

The labels are asking for $150,000 per each copyright infringed -- and there are 18 pages of infringements.

8..I couldn't imagine having sex with my husband to a Michael Jackson song. Some things will never happen in life and that is one of them. Ha! I would change the radio station so fast.

How stupid are these people to think you can just steal someone's artistic endeavers and make a profit off of them? If I were to write a song and someone just TOOK it and used it in the most raunchiest of ways I'd be pissed.

Uh no...genius

It is about the mood the music sets.
Never once has Marvin Gaye crossed my mind while making it to "Sexual Healing" or Luthor's face floated by while "Wait for Love" melodically plays during a tender moment. Or as handsome as he is, George Srait when he sings "You look so good in Love".

To brush such a broad stroke just because its Michael shows a small mindset by the OP and oh perhaps a tinge of racist tendencies as well.

I see she didnt mention any of the other acts specified in the blog entry, only Michael. Hmmmm....bait perhaps?

All these devil individuals who deal in porn or do porn are going to be sorry when Jesus comes back to this earth to get his true followers because they will be left here to go through the tribulation for seven years where they will accept the mark of the beast which is the devil, and will burn in the lake of fire after God sends his angels after these seven years to put the devil and his followers into the lake of fire where they will burn up. I pray that God will help them change his or her ways but its hard for God to do if they are not willing to change themselves. The devil is in these individuals so bad they would do anything to make a buck. Hope the record labels get them for using others music as porn.

@ TooBad I like all those songs and artists you mentioned. I'm just not a MJ fan. Why do you throw the "race card" in our face? Is it because MJ is black and I don't like him? Your the racist or your are setting the bait!

Don't want to be attacked by the spelling retards. It's "Your the racist or you're setting the bait!"
