Porn company sues over Deep Throat footage

The company that owns the rights to 1972 pornographic film Deep Throat has taken legal action to block the release of the new movie Lovelace.

The biopic stars Amanda Seyfried and is based on the formative years of adult film actress Linda Lovelace.

Arrow Productions Ltd says the film, due out in the US on Friday, uses more than five minutes of unlicensed footage from Deep Throat.

They also claim the title Lovelace is used “without license or permission”.

Arrow filed a $10 million (£6.5m) copyright action at the District Court in Manhattan on Tuesday.

Its legal action said the company “and its partners were surprised to hear about Lovelace because no one had approached Arrow for a license to use any of Arrow’s intellectual property”.

The action seeks an injunction against the distribution and marketing of Lovelace, an accounting of all profits and revenues from the film, and damages of at least $10 million.

The film is scheduled to be released in the UK on 23 August.
