'Fifty Shades' Porn Parody Countersuit Claims Books Are In Public Domain

Smash Pictures now has responded to the lawsuit with a counterclaim, and it's quite scintillating.

"On information and belief, as much as 89% of the content of the allegedly copyrighted materials grew out of a multi-part series of fan fiction called Masters of the Universe based on Stephenie Myer's (sic) Twilight novels. On information and belief, this content was published online between 2009 and 2011 in various venues, including fanfiction.net and the person website of Ericka (sic) Leonard. On information and belief, much or all of this material was placed in the public domain."
