The producers of Hulu's & BBC Three series “Normal People” have issued a takedown request to adult site Pornhub after a compilation of sex scenes from the 12-part series surfaced on the adult video-sharing platform.

 

The 22-minute compilation video of sex scenes from the series was posted on Pornhub last week, but now it has been removed. However other porn sites were quick to copy and upload it to theirs and it is still present online.

 

We’re hugely disappointed that excerpts from the series of ‘Normal People’ have been used in this way. It’s both a violation of copyright and more importantly, it’s deeply disrespectful to the actors involved and to the wider creative team. We have taken appropriate steps to require that the content be removed from the platform with immediate effect” Ed Guiney, executive producer of “Normal People” to News website Variety.

 

Pornhub told News website Variety that the video has been removed from its site. Corey Price, VP of Pornhub, said: “Pornhub is fully compliant with the law. We respect all copyright requests and as soon as we become aware of the existence of these types of videos on our site, we have them removed.”

 

The pirating and distribution of TV and sex scenes online has become a major issue with the growth of internet video sharing platforms, having also affected shows such as “Game of Thrones” and now Illegal cuts of intimate scenes from “Normal People” are also circulating on other sites on the internet.

 

It would have been surprising If scenes from ‘Normal People’ were not being copied, edited and shared online. It happens all the time, and there is not a lot anyonce can do about it.

 

While legitimate video-sharing sites based in countries such as the U.S. and U.K. will comply with takedown requests, it is much harder to deal with illegal platforms operating out of countries such as Russia. Studios can try to take down the sites, but the commercial reality is that it is expensive to do — and another site will quickly pop up in its place.

 

But the pirating of sex-scenes to these sites is also drawing more people to the show. Out of the negative you have got to take the positive — that exposure is possibly a help if you are trying to sell the show across the world.

 

Starring Daisy Edgar-Jones as Marianne and Paul Mescal as Connell, the 12-part “Normal People” Follows Marianne and Connell, from different backgrounds but the same small town in Ireland, as they weave in and out of each other's romantic lives.

Since launching April 26 as a box set on digital channel BBC Three in the U.K., the series has won acclaim from critics and drawn viewers en masse to catch-up service BBC iPlayer. “Normal People” was released in the U.S. on Hulu on April 29.

 

Pornhub is one of the world’s most visited adult websites, averaging more than 100 billion video views a year.
