The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that San Diego, California based Liberty Media Holdings also known better to us as CorbinFisher.com has filed a civil lawsuit against a former Corbin Fisher turned escort Justin Kreuger ( photo left of Justin Kreuger via Orlando Sentinel ) and escort website, Men4RentNow.com for copyright infringement. Corbin Fisher raises claim that the photos used to associate the former model’s escorting profile were in violation of copyright laws as the 7 images were the property of Corbin Fisher when Justin modeled for Fisher under the name of Greg.
Corbin Fisher seeks $150,000.00 per photo for a total of one million from both the model and escort site.
Following my reading of the Orlando newspaper article I made the connection that Justin is in fact JetSetsMen’s Jake Lyons starring now in the newly released DvD, Pizza Boys Gangbang.
Any chance this Corbin Fisher legal action is related to Jake’s recent appearance in a JetSetMen DVD? It has always been rumored that Corbin Fisher only likes to work with models who would be only exclusive to their brand.

Photographs of a self-described porn star that were placed on a male escort’s Web site are at the center of a copyright and trademark infringement lawsuit filed in Orlando federal court. At issue are seven risque pictures of Orlando resident Justin Krueger that were uploaded to men4rentnow.com. The photos include a trademarked name — Corbin Fisher — on each image, according to the suit brought by San Diego-based Liberty Media Holdings.
Liberty Media owns the rights to those images. It wants about $1 million in damages, the suit says — $150,000 for each infringement it is alleging.
Attempts to reach Krueger were unsuccessful.
Through its attorney, Wintice Group, which runs men4rentnow.com, denied any wrongdoing.
Wintice Group merely operates a classified ad service, similar to Craigslist or other classified ad services,” attorney Peter L. Arvant wrote in an e-mail. “Individual advertisers directly upload and post all of their own content and photos. Wintice Group does not post any content or photographs.”
“Wintice is very mindful and respectful of intellectual property rights. We would never infringe on another company’s rights, just as we hope and expect that others would not infringe on our intellectual property. Wintice is confident that the legal process will show that.”
Krueger is a model who worked for Liberty Media, appearing in a movie “Greg,” the suit says.
A copy of the men4rentnow.com listing is included in the federal court file. The online listing states Krueger is a “rising porn star and a [sic] escort.”
A MySpace page reportedly belonging to Krueger also says the 19-year-old is a porn star.
Krueger is nude in several of the photographs that were uploaded to men4rentnow.com. Liberty Media claims it never licensed its photographs to an escort agency.
Update: There was some initial confusion with this story based on a post by TheSword.com that the model Justin Krueger was NOT named as a defendant. You can now see that Corbin Fisher’s attorney Marc Randazza has weighed in our comment section below and has clarified that the MODEL IS ALSO A NAMED AS A DEFENDANT in the action.
The Sword was in error in correcting us when in fact this post’s initial report was in fact correct.We have now edited and retracted the previous followup where we related that the model was not a defendant.
