Washington, July 11 (ANI): Record labels including Warner Bros., Eleketra, Atlantic and Bad Boy have dragged RK Netmedia and RealityKings.com to court, claiming the sites are using their music as the soundtracks and 'inspiration' adult entertainment videos.

According to the lawsuit, the tracks are often playing in the background while "models or actors are 'performing' their scenes." Sometimes, "the performers 'lip-sync' the lyrics of a song while engaged in intercourse or other sexual activity," claims the suit.

The record labels allege that some times the titles of the videos are made up from the songs they use - like "Bringing Sexy Back" uses Justin Timberlake's "SexyBack", reports TMZ.com.

The companies are demanding 150,000dollars for each copyright violation. (ANI)
