GameLink Offers $15K Donation to Mike Webb If He Denounces Porn Piracy
SAN FRANCISCO — GameLink.com today pledged a $15,000 donation to the campaign of Republican congressional candidate Mike Webb of Virginia if he publicly denounces the digital piracy of pornographic movies.
Yesterday, Webb made national headlines as he shared a screenshot of his computer’s desktop on his Facebook page, which included open tabs leading to porn scenes on adult tube sites.
“We value the same principles of accountability and honesty which Mike Webb is running his platform on, and we would love to contribute to a campaign which actually backs these ideals up,” said Jeff Dillon, vice president of business development for eLine management company, whose clients include GameLink.com.
Free porn tube sites often feature pirated movies from adult entertainment studios, costing the adult industry millions of dollars each year, Dillon said.
The captioned videos on Webb’s screenshot are available on tube sites like RedTube, PornHub and XHamster.
Webb often takes screenshots in an attempt to show how he is spending his time researching issues affecting his constituents, Dillon said. The screenshots are his way of showing accountability and honesty of how he is spending his time.
“We are glad to hear Mike Webb watches pornography, like most average Americans, but we hope he does it ethically and ceases to watch pirated content,” Dillon added. “With the increased media attention on Mike Webb, now is a great opportunity for him to use his platform to denounce porn piracy without distancing himself from the fact he enjoys adult movies.”
In addition to offering a donation to Webb’s campaign, GameLink is hoping to help Webb simplify the number of tabs he has open by offering him a free account to GameLink.com, which features an almost-infinite amount of adult entertainment.
“GameLink.com is the source of all the best adult movies and scenes online from all the best studios. It’s the only URL Mike Webb will ever need to visit when in need of some relaxation,” Dillon said.
