Default Pirates Using Porn Loophole to Stream 'Rogue One', 'Doctor Strange'

Enterprising pirates have found a new place to upload the latest blockbusters without the pirated flicks being taken down.

Hit movies like 'Rogue One', 'Captain America: Civil War' and 'Doctor Strange' are appearing on an unexpected video sharing platform, and pirates don't even have to alter the video (such as mirroring, cropping or perform audio pitch changes) in order for the video to stay uploaded.

That unexpected platform is Pornhub, or any number of porn video sites, where pirated, but non porn content, are appearing with greater regularity.

For unclear reasons, rights-holders are ignoring sites like Pornhub when it comes to copyright enforcement, and so the pirated videos stay uploaded.

It isn't the case that the porn site operators are refusing requests to remove content. Pornhub, for example, takes copyright seriously and will remove any video flagged as pirated by users or rights-holders.

"Our TOS only allows for users to upload content that they themselves own. Pornhub abides by DMCA law with regards to takedown requests and we remove unauthorized content as soon as we are made aware of itŚas has been the case with any and all full, theatrically released movies," read a statement from Pornhub.

For movie watcher, there is a catch. A rather big one that's hard to ignore. Sites like Pornhub are plastered with traditional display, pop-up and in-video ads, often for other porn related services.

But this may be a small price to pay for having to not pay a price.
