Default Stolen material

Hi All

My name is Somchai and Ive worked for a number of years with Grooby.com- probably the largest and longest producer of transsexual porn on the net. Our sites include Ladyboyladyboy, Shemales from Hell, and Shemale Yum.

In America a model gets paid between $1000 and $2000 for a photo shoot and then of course there is the photogrpher to pay. Then we have to pay our office staff who collate the material, photoshop it or edit videos. Then of course we have to pay our computer people who update our sites and keep our servers running. Costs of Asian models are about half that of the USA.

So all in all 1 American photo shoot = around $3000-$4000 ot 2000 UK pounds.

It is very expensive to do what we do. We recoup our money by charging people to view our Copywrite material.


So here is a simple question or two.

How come so many of you feel you can Steal this material without penalty to you or this website? Your Freebie area is swamped with stolen material.!

Not only ours- LB69 and AsianTS and ladyboy Crush to name just 4 sources. You pay to view them on the sites and you are entitled to download them for personal use. You are not entitled to use them to post on other sites without permission. So why are many of you currently involved with such theft. Theft of copywrite material from websites and from me- I shoot for LBLB and I see many of MY PHOTOS POSTED HERE- by what right do you do that.

Id be really interested in your piss poor answers.

Somchai

Somchai, half the stuff on the freebies section you can google and you'll find it. The very second something is posted on the internet, it's no longer personal.

Anyway, this website isn't gaining from any of the pics on the boards financially!

TS means tran sexual.
It also means something else.
I hope you learn it and apply it in the tone it was meant.
The pron industry is not exactly lilly white on ethics you know.
Don't like my answer? Well, ts!

Exactly. Well said!

In fact this forum has always been a place for a celebration of Shemales/Transexuals and the various sites that produce such content.

Think of it as a form of free advertising (as some people on this board do. I'm thinking of people like Nikkitsfun.com Pic-of-the-Day).

But noooo you'd rather wade in here and accuse everyone of been criminals and stealing.

Maybe if you'd come in here and said, hey guys I'm someone who works for blah blah shemale site dot com, here's a few samples of my work come and have a look! Then you might have got a bit of "Free" advertising and had some new members who might have joined your precious little site(s) thus helping to pay your meager wages.

In fact the blog that this forum spun out of constantly linked to content out there provided by sites that freely distribute their samples to try to entice new members, I believe it's something of a business model that has been used on the internet for quite some time.

Most of the material posted is available on various free galleries.

I am a paid up member of the Grooby Archives, but will be cancelling

When its posted on the free sites, they probably dont have permission to post it in the first place.

As for your cancellation - I am obviuosly deeply broken hearted- who wouldnt be.

Well dressing it up as a business model maybe works for you- but to me its still a form of theft. WE have affilliate sites all over that show our material as advertising for our sites. However we control what content they can use. We dont just say - hey help youself- download as much as you want. If people can just do that then there is no reason for us to stay in business and there would be no sites for you to download from. Think about it.

"precious little site(s) thus helping to pay your meager wages.


And anything that can help my meager wages is always welcome. Can you spare a $ mate. Oh and just so you know- LBLB is part of Grooby.com, acknowledged as the largest and first producers of transgendered porn on the net.

Well thankyou for that. But like I said above, I expected many piss poor answers and you didnt let me down.

I still work for Grooby in Asia and my answer to your second question is- yes- all the time as I live here. Take a look at LBLB forum- link below and you will begin to understand what it might be like to live and work in Asia as I do. I must know over 500 ladyboys that live in my town and most will have sex for pay at around Bt1000 or $30. Some will do it for less. I have a string of around 7 ladyboys who come to see me at home regularly and do it for free cos they lurve me.

Get yourself to Asia for a holiday and a really good time.

I'm curious.. and tempted too..I'm not shy sexually but shy of mom/friends finding out etc... but .. as someone who might be able to answer my question...

How much could someone European/caucasian, muscular with all his own teeth and ruggedly handsome like myself,lol with a fairly large cock who can basically go all day with it (tested on ex girlfriends) earn if he tried his hand at being a porn star ? It would beat being an english teacher if I moved to asia full time lol ....

I know I d never do it as I couldnt handle that sort of fame but I'm curious about whether job opportunities exist and if so, is it a worthwhile career? Maybe with a bag over my head ,lol...

Dear Inadaze

I am sorry as I have no information on male models. I understand that there are websites for models seeking work and photographers seeking models. You might try there for such info. For hard core shoots in Asia for LBLB its usually LB on LB. Generally speaking I undertand that Thai man on Thai LB is not as appreciated as a Western man on LB. Which leads me on to? I was thinking of maybe giving an oppurtunity to good looking western guys, here on holiday, to do a hardcore shoot. So if you ever get yourself over here there is a crack of an openning if you were to fancy it. As for the money- How about a beer or two to start your superstar status?

Default be a tranny

Be a tranny.
Make a transition.
If you don't like the present situation,
you could try a different occupation.
( you could encript your work so it couldn't be downloaded )
Or you could entice us to buy your product. Your thread here has failed terribly as a PR promotion. For you, I hope your boss doesn't find out.

People who sell porn and then claim the rest of the world is un-ethical!
Geeeesh, give me a break.

I've seen cock, I've seen tits, I've seen ass and I've seen the beauty in the complete package. I have friends on the web that know how to write very sexy porn stories. Somchai, what do we need you for? You could be replaced by a button.

Somchai, please check your PM.

I don't like dramas on boards (which HungAngels is infamous for) and most likely this thread will be closed. You have my ICQ, please contact me to work out a solution that would be equally acceptable for both the parties. I myself don't like to be labeled a thief, and i believe neither do all forum members.

If YOU are an employee but not the owner of the company and/or the material, you don't have a right to make the owner of this website or forum take any of this down, and what your post amounts to is to ask for the opinion of the users.

If the company you work for hasn't deemed it fit to intervene here, logically I can gather because they aren't losing money, just got gaining anything for the pictures people download who wouldn't really pay to join the site anyway, then no action need be taken and your point is moot.

Why don't you go harass torrent websites instead?

Hi somchai, i heard in italy same words form the copywriters fans, but here it's a bit different, most of the material u can some comes from FREE galleries, published by most of known sites of ts.

So what's the problem? If u simply click "shemale gallery" on google u'll watch tons of stolen materials, don't u? So let's stop google, let's make the entire internet pay-per-use, pay-per.view, pay-per-listen and goodbye.
