Game of Thrones Network sue Pornhub !!!!!

If you don’t watch Game of Thrones for the intrigue, the twists, and the dragons, you could still tune in to see the steamy sex scenes — apparently even if you don’t have HBO!

The premium network is seeking legal action against Pornhub over breach of copyright because some scenes from the show were uploaded on the site!
Whether they’re there because of the actual content, or just because they are that popular, they have caused somewhat of a controversy between HBO and Pornhub.
The world’s largest porn site has been flooded with hundreds of nude clips and sex scenes of the HBO fantasy series — some videos even include parodies of porn stars pretending to be characters like Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and Melisandre (Carice van Houten)
In a statement, HBO said: “HBO is aware of the issue and is in the process of getting material taken down from Pornhub.”
Game of Thrones is renowned for its nudity and gratuitous violence, some of the scenes are so raunchy that they have made their way on to Pornhub. Some of the actors who have appeared in the show have also appeared in adult films in the past, including German actress Sibel Kekilli, who played Tyrion Lannister’s (Peter Dinklage) love interest Shae. Sahara Knite, also a porn actress, featured in one of Game of Thrones’s most controversial sex scenes, in which brothel owner Littlefinger coached new prostitutes to fake an orgasm.

Last month, Pornhub released data saying searches containing “Game of Thrones” shot up 370% right before the season six premiere in April. More specific searches on the site included Walk of Shame — the infamous scene in season five which saw Cersei walk naked through the streets of Westeros’s capital, King’s Landing. Emilia Clarke, who plays dragon queen Daenerys Targaryen, was the most searched for Game of Thrones actress on Pornhub — closely followed by Natalie Dormer, who plays Margaery Tyrell, and Sibel Kekilli.

Don’t be expecting a Blackwater-style legal battle over this, as the spank site is graciously backing down to the network’s threat. Vice president Corey Price said the site takes illegal material down as soon as it becomes aware of it, explaining:
“Pornhub is fully compliant with the law. We respect all copyright requests and once received immediately remove any infringing content, as well as offer content fingerprinting to block infringing content from being uploaded by content owners.”

But from now on, it looks like fans who want to exclusively watch GoT for the sex and nudity will have to watch the entire episode like the rest of us!
