The plaintiff holds QWorldstar Inc., doing business as Worldstar, Worldstar Hip Hop, Worldstar Candy and/or Worldstar Agency; Worldstar Management LLC; and Does 1 through 10 responsible because the defendants allegedly posted several of plaintiff's videos through social media for the benefit of their own business and without any authority from plaintiff and continued to do so after take-down requests were sent to them.
