After copyright-protected content from Onlyfans was published for a long time without legal consequences on Reddit, a lawyer is now trying to take action against it.

On March 9, 2020, lawyer Jason Fischer sent a demand to Reddit to take content offline for copyright infringement. In it, the lawyer informed the platform that his client, erotic actress Natasha Noel, was the owner of the rights to various photo and video content posted on Onlyfans as well as other social media networks.

"Pursuant to the DMCA, we respectfully request that you execute the attached subpoena directing Reddit's records custodian to disclose the identities of its users," the attorney demands in the lawsuit. Reddit should turn over to the plaintiffs "any and all information" relating to the identities of the "individuals who posted the images and content" that previously appeared at the URLs listed in the lawsuit, he said.
