(The Local) A German court has rejected a US company’s request for copyright on two pornographic films. Their “primitive” depiction of sex meant that they did not count as intellectual property, the judge decided.

US company Malibu Media wanted to sue a number of people in Germany who had downloaded the films “Flexible Beauty” and “Young Passion”, which it claimed were its property, tech site torrentfreak.com reported.

But the “primitive depiction of sexual processes” mean the films are classified as “pure pornography”, said broadcaster Deutschlandradio, meaning there was not enough intellectual property to be copyrighted, the Munich regional court decided this week.
