Millennium Films wins copyright suit over “Lovelace”

“Deep Throat” producers claimed new film about porn star violating its intellectual property

If Linda Boreman were alive today, she would likely be pleased that producers of the upcoming film depicting her tumultuous life as porn star Linda Lovelace just won a big victory against the producers of “Deep Throat,” the 1972 porn film she later regretted starring in.

Arrow Productions, which produced “Deep Throat,” filed suit against The Weinstein Co. and Millennium Films, makers of the upcoming “Lovelace.” The suit claimed that the new film, which profiles Boreman’s rise and fall in the porn industry, unlawfully uses more than five minutes of footage from “Deep Throat,” in violation of Arrow’s copyright.
