Even porn studios like public domain stories

Adult movie studios have free rein under the First Amendment to parody copyrighted creative works, such as TV shows and movies. But they still like to parody classics – including fairy tales – in the public domain as well.
So when the adult movie industry isn’t making X-rated parodies of modern entertainment like “Avatar” and “The Big Lebowski,” it’s doing parodies of classic tales.

Part 5: Porn studios put sexy spin on public domain stories

Perverts that they are, adult movie studios like to take innocent children’s stories and turn them into raunchy, sex-filled romps.
Snow White becomes “Ho White and the 7 Midgets” (1996) and Robin Hood becomes “Throbbin’ Hood” (2006).
This year alone has seen the release of two “Alice in Wonderland” parodies – “Erica McLean’s Alice” and “Alice: A Fairy Love Tale” – as well as parodies of Robin Hood and Little Red Riding Hood – “This Ain’t Robin Hood” and “Red Riding Hood XXX.”
The porn studios also have parodied the plays of William Shakespeare, including “Hamlet” (1999), “Romeo & Juliet” as “Juliet & Romeo” (1994), and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” as “A Midsummer Night’s Cream” (2000), according to Adult DVD Empire.
Is nothing sacred?
