Bang Bros /ˈbæŋbrz/ is an Internet pornography production company operating from Miami, Florida which was founded in 2000. The network has 36 websites, 16 of which were being regularly updated as of June 2012.

Legal issues[edit]

BangBros Inc was sued by the U.S. government in June 2005 for violating the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Adult Labeling Rule and Federal CAN-SPAM Act.[3] The company failed to follow the rule that requires commercial e-mailers of sexually explicit material to use the phrase "sexually explicit" in the subject line. The company settled the lawsuit for $650,000, and also agreed to allow its operations to be monitored to ensure that it will comply with the law in the future.[4][5]
