VIVID STUDIO INSIDER FOR MARCH 18th, 2005
VIVID STUDIO INSIDER FOR MARCH 18th, 2005VIVID'S HIRSCH INTERVIEWED BY "INSIDER"
and co-CEO Steven Hirsch played
a prominent role in coverage of a Congressional
story on the nationally syndicated TV show "Insider"
Wednesday night (March 16). As visuals of several
Vivid features flashed across the screen, Hirsch
was interviewed in connection with reports that
the U.S. Congress wants to extend "decency" guidelines
to Video-on-Demand and Pay-per-View programs and
possibly to cable networks as a whole. Said Hirsch:
"I don't think we've ever seen a battle like this.
They're going after Pay-per-View on TV. Nobody
has the right to tell anybody else what they can
or cannot watch in the privacy of their own home.
We produce movies by adults for adults and we
believe people should have the right to watch
them." He noted that parental control tools are
already available and that to begin legislating
what people can watch is "a slippery slope."
VIVID GIRLS MERCEDEZ & MONIQUE AT WMC
---Vivid Girls Mercedez and Monique
Alexander are heading to Miami for the Winter
Music Conference. They'll be representing the

promotion, and both will be "Globe Girls" and
presenters at the 3rd Annual Club World Awards
gala on Wednesday night March 23rd at Nocturne.
Other presenters include Kelly Osbourne, Scumfrog,
Donny and Tenaglia.
VIVID GIRL TERA PATRICK GOES TO COURT
---Vivid Girl Tera Patrick
is in London this week shooting for a "Day in
the Life of?" feature for FHM UK.
Before she left she filed a suit against a California
company that has been using her name and image
to promote an in/outcall escort service in Los
Angeles. The ad appeared in a Los Angeles weekly
and it's a fake. Says Tera in an interview with
Celebrity Justice: "I'm
very angry. The ad portrays me in a light I don't
want to be portrayed." So she is suing Metro
Entertainment, the California company
that she says placed the ad, claiming it damaged
her business, invaded her privacy and confused
her fans. She says fans came up to her after the
ad appeared with the impression that she had become
a "working girl." "They would say, 'Hey, I called
you last night, it was great talking to you.'
And I was like, 'What?' I would do my dance gigs
and they said, 'Hey, I'm going to stop by and
see you later.' And they were giving me the 'wink'
and I was like, 'What are you talking about?'"
"I don't have anything against any of the girls
who do that, but it's just not for me. When I
meet my fans I have my clothes on." The Celebrity
Justice segment will also air on Court
VIVID FEATURED IN VOD STORY ---Vivid
Entertainment is featured in a story
in the San Fernando Valley Business Journal
on the growth of Video-on-Demand. The story by
Jeff Weiss (on 3/14/2005) says in part: "(Mainstream
companies are) not the only local companies to
profit off of the emerging video on demand market.
Adult film company Vivid Video, located in the
Cahuenga Pass near Universal City, has also recently
been increasing its VOD revenues. While Vivid
CEO Steven Hirsch claims that only about five
percent of the company's sales come from VOD,
he maintains that the technology is only in its
infancy and growing fast. 'It's still a very small
part of our revenues but it's growing all the
time. There are two different parts of our VOD
business. We offer VOD over the Internet through
companies like CinemaNow and then there is VOD
television, in which we partner with the cable
companies and Playboy TV,' Hirsch said. 'We see
both of them growing and we will probably double
our VOD revenues this year over last year. I see
VOD, whether it's on TV or on the computer, as
ultimately being a main focus of our business.'"
