Default Why are books sometimes turned spine-in in porn?

So, a couple of months ago, I watched a scene set in a room with bookshelves. There were books on the shelves, and they were all facing the "wrong" way - with the spines towards the wall, not towards the room. I've never ever seen that in real life, AFAI can recall, which is why I noticed and remembered it. Didn't give it any real thought at the time, though.

A couple of days ago, I watched another scene, set in another room, with the same peculiarity. Which is either a coincidence, or this is a "thing" - I'm thinking the latter.

If so, what? My first working hypothesis was that these weren't actual rooms but created sets, and the people who decorated them simply didn't know which way books are supposed to face and guessed wrong. This being porn, such a degree of cluelessness seemed within the realm of possibilty, just about. Heh.

Just now, I thought of another explanation, though: If they are actual rooms, maybe they turned the books around on purpose, and for some concrete purpose? If so, I'm guessing it's about making them unidentifiable. Privacy concerns? Legal concerns? Something along those lines? Further speculation invited.

I don't recall which scenes these were off the top of my head, but with a bit of effort I can probably work it out, if you'd like me to...

Most likely this. The same reason that you often see brand logos on products covered up or blurred out in things, especially reality shows and other unscripted shows.

Yeah, I watched many porn scenes where they had to blur a lot of stuff, t-shirts, magazines, store signs etc...

So, I think it is for legal reasons

I consume no unscripted content to speak of, but have occasionally noticed this in porn, yes. So then the question becomes, why do they bother about such things some but not most of the time? Maybe it's on the "light-grey side" of a grey area, so that most content creators and trademark holders never give it a second thought, but a select few are overly careful/known to be overly zealous?

Perhaps the books did not fit in with the "theme" of the scene. A lot of folks in porn believe they are making "art" (I laugh at the notion). The book titles and subjects might be contrary to any porn scene.

It's a nice thought, but I'm having a hard time thinking of books whose presence I'd find more incongruous than one that's turned spine-in. "Best Practices in Accountancy" certainly wouldn't qualify, say. "Mein Kampf" would, but a scenario in which someone rents out their house to a porn producer and leaves a whole shelf of books of that ilk standing around in plain sight seems a bit far-fetched. :P

I have seen in older productions from the 90's where the books are absolutely out in the open. There was one scene in an early 90's movie where a copy of a Stephen King book hardcover was on the shelf, along with Winston Churchill books and other non fiction books.

In No Man's Land 15, Sahara Sands reads out of a copy of William S. Burroughs "Junky".



There are also very conspicuous cartons of Bud in the background as well. What is weird is that in the 90s, a lot of rap videos had NBA and other corporate logos blurred out all the time. Granted, those were on MTV and had greater exposure than porn I would bet.

It's basically all about copyright issues.

There are tons of scenes set in "libraries", which no way no how would be able to get away with turning the books spine-in. Coincidentally, I actually watched one such after becoming aware of this - "Quiet in the Library" from GirlsWay, released a week ago - and can confirm that all spines were visible, though I didn't manage (or even try) to identify individual titles. I suppose in principle they could have been cardboard props and not actual books, but those are usually easy to spot, so I think not.

Interesting. The book is sufficiently old that it's possible, though not likely, that it's already in the public domain, if the holders let the copyright lapse. Or maybe this falls under Fair Use. Or maybe it doesn't but they got away with it anyway. Or maybe they actually asked for and got permission, of course.

I mean, when they use popular music, as an analogous and much more common element, I assume they do that and/or pay royalties, surely?

And how about "Hysterical Literature", or is that a different situation because it's artistic endeavour or not-for-profit or whatever?

I mean, there's a certain Hitachi device that's got to be the most heavily placed (placemented?) product in all of porn. For sex toys in particular, such usage equates to free advertising, so I cannot imagine there being any reluctance on the part of the trademark holders. And while I'm personally quite clueless when it comes to such brands, cars and clothing and the like are bound to be identifiable more often than not. If those are unproblematic, why aren't other kinds of things? *scratches head*

I know it has to do with copyright issues and with these super HD cameras now, they can snag all sorts of detail. I'm sure it's a helluva cheaper to have some production assistant flip the books or mask off any visible logos as opposed to having them blur it out in post production.

If i were shooting any sort of video production (especially porn) I'd mask off as much as possible to avoid some sharp eyed lawyer for one of those mega-companies from coming after me. They could easily lean on me and have me shelve the product or have it destroyed. An ounce of prevention here can spare a pound of pain.
