    This article is based entirely off of public data which has been provided directly from the GFY.com community. There is a real digital underground war taking place between the Adult Entertainment Industry and American & Foreign Corporations.

    The central gathering place for adult internet entrepreneurs is on a website called GFY.com. The community first opened its doors on January 17th, 1999 and has been a driving force behind the online adult entertainment industry ever since. Its a gathering for the rich, famous, disgruntled & up and comers of the adult industry. Site owners from the one time infamous Adult Friend Finder to the relatively new and booming InstaBang.com can be found conversing on the forum at one time or another. Members communicate with each other, discussing trends, the future of Adult Entertainment and exchanging services.

    I am prepared to put personal time, resources and money into achieving a successful outcome. However I cant do it all by myself. I started this thread to have a serious discussion about tactics we can use to make the life of file locker operators miserable. - GFY.com

    From the outside looking in the website appears to be entirely legit and comes across as a fairly reputable community. Thats until you realize that there is an underground war taking place between two distinctly related business models. And that the central hub for adult entertainment online, GFY.com which was acquired by the AVN Media Network in 2013 is the launching point from where a large portion of these attacks come from. ...

    One of the worlds most popular Affiliate networks AdCash.com has been exposed for shaving their own publishers earnings. Whose responsible for the exposure? None other than yours truly, ScrollDog.com. We received a tip that the company had been shaving clients for some time and decided that it would only be appropriate to try out the service ourselves. What we discovered was that AdCash uses skimming techniques for all new clients that fall within pre-catonic exposure. We enrolled through the service and established an account for testing purposes to determine if the allegations were true. ...

    The former operator of USAWarez.com and USATorrents.com, who has served more than two years in prison for copyright infringement, has outed several prisons for showing pirated movies to their inmates. One of the prisons mentioned says that the matter is still under investigation.

    In 2010 Richard Humphrey was sentenced to 29 months in prison for operating several pirate sites, including the popular USAWarez.com and USATorrents.com.

    Earlier this year Humphrey, who is a well-known figure in the warez community in various roles, went back to jail after he violated his probation. This time he was sent to Lorain Correctional Institution in Ohio, where he was surprised to see that pirated copies of Ride Along and Wolf of Wall Street were being played for inmates.

    According to Humphrey the movies were shown while they were still playing in theaters and had clear earmarks of being pirated copies. ...

    In the wake of the U.S. disaster, Payza has now relaunched their UK operations. The popular online payment platform has resumed operations with the United Kingdom in full force. This move comes after the November 26th, 2013 catastrophe that resulted with U.S. based funds seized in over 30 states. Eventually the issue spread to all 50 states and Payza experienced a country wide blockade. The problem still persists in the United States and the situation has left hundreds of thousands of users frustrated to say the least. As a result of the funds being frozen and the ongoing investigation by the United States Department Of Justice, Payza needed to do something substantial to help off-set the loss. This could be exactly what the company needed. ...

    ThePirateBay, which has seen its share of the spotlight in the past, has had consistent pressure on their domains once again in recent days. Since TPB first opened doors they have had nearly 20 different domain extensions. In the past 2 days alone, TPB has gone from .sx, to .ac to .pe. The .SX belonging to the tiny island of Sint Maarten, .ac belonging to the UKs Ascension Island and .pe belong to Peru. The most recent .pe domain will only be a temporary solution as Peru authorities will be soon to seize this domain as well. As a result ThePirateBay will move to a new extension shortly. If they were able to acquire thepiratebay.so or thepiratebay.ag it would be ideal. These are two of the safest locations (Angola & Burma or Somalia) to register domains and it would make sense if the ship attempted to sail there. ...
