Grand Jury Deliberating Ron Jeremy Case in LA – Why?

A grand jury met earlier this week in a Los Angeles-area courthouse to consider accusations of multiple counts of sexual assault against performer and industry personality Ron Jeremy. Industry news reported that the grand jury was convened in secrecy, with the prosecution presenting testimony from some of the people cited in the indictments. This may have included both victims and witnesses. Adult entertainment attorney Corey D. Silverstein offered some insights, explaining the purpose and significance of a grand jury reconvening. “The purpose of a grand jury being reconvened would typically mean that new evidence has surfaced that the state wishes to present for the purpose of either adding additional charges, potentially additional victims or potentially raising some of the charges,” Silverstein explained. Charges against Jeremy now involve 23 victims. He has pleaded “not guilty” to all of the charges.

Attorney Corey D. Silverstein Shutters Piracy-Based Site 4anime

MyAdultAttorney Silverstein issued a subpoena demanding operator information, resulting in 4anime’s preemptive closure. With millions of monthly visitors, 4anime was once one of the internet’s most prolific piracy-based streaming sites. The site, however, abruptly and unceremoniously announced its shutdown on July 13, providing no explanation as to why. But we know why: It was because of attorney Corey D. Silverstein. Silverstein, the driving force behind and Adult.Law, issued a subpoena on July 5 on behalf of Legacy Rights Group. The subpoena required CDN provider Cloudflare to hand over the personal information of 4anime’s operators -- names, addresses, billing records, email addresses, IP addresses, and any other information that could help to track down the people in charge -- essentially unmasking the pirates behind the site. Typically compliant with these sorts of requests, Cloudflare had three weeks for the date of issuance to respond. The subpoena, however, essentially became moot as 4anime shuttered of its own accord well before the July 26th deadline. Per TorrentFreak, “We don’t know for sure that this legal pressure is the reason for [4anime’s] sudden shutdown, but the timing would certainly fit.” TorrentFreak also stated that “whether any data were handed over [prior to closure]…

Adult Attorney Corey D. Silverstein Appears in RollingStone

On March 23, 2021, journalist EJ Dickson published a new article in RollingStone entitled “How the Dream of a Porn-Content House Fell Apart”. In this fascinating article, EJ Dickson tells the story of a group of webcam performers that moved in together for the benefit of the group but the dream situation quickly became ugly. As part of the article, Dickson interviewed prominent adult lawyer Corey D. Silverstein who provided invaluable commentary on the subject including, “If you set [a content house] up the right way, it could be great,” Corey Silverstein, an adult-industry lawyer based in Michigan, tells Rolling Stone. “The problem is when you have one person who does it the wrong way, that’s what everyone thinks overall it is.” Allegations of exploitation, he stresses, are “exactly the sort of thing we don’t want or need in this industry.” This was especially true at the start of the pandemic, says Silverstein. “As Covid-19 really hit, you had this monumental shift from conventional content creation,” such as a studio hiring performers to shoot content, “to performers going into business for themselves,” he says. “It happened very quickly, and models had to think on their feet.” “If you’ve got a…

On February 2, 2021, RollingStone writer EJ Dickson published an article entitled “Sex Workers Worry They’re Going to Be Purged From Twitter." Dickson’s article discusses Twitter’s recent suspension of adult content platforms Clips4Sale and Model Centro. The article dives into the growing fear that Twitter may be becoming adult unfriendly, and in preparing the piece, Dickson spoke with some of the most influential personalities in the adult entertainment industry including adult industry attorney Corey D. Silverstein. Silverstein’s notable comments in the article include: “Since ModelCentro and Clips4Sale were suspended, “the phone hasn’t stopped ringing,” says Corey Silverstein, a lawyer who represents many adult industry clients. “It’s just been ongoing messages of people being terrified they’re going to lose everything.” and “I don’t think people really understand that there’s been a massive shift where adult performers are all in business for themselves,” says Silverstein. “They are their own breadwinners. They feed their families and pay their bills based on the followers they have on social media. Now they’re seeing services bumped off the platform, and they’re scared.” If Twitter does tighten its restrictions on sexual content as a matter of policy, he says, “it is going to cripple these people.
