Larry Flynt

The publisher of "Hustler Magazine" and its popular film studio, Flint is one of the industry's more controversial figures, but his power in porn has never wavered. The Hustler brand also extends to casinos, mainstream clothing lines and adult novelty stores. He has withstood several legal challenges, including a Supreme Court case in 1988. Most recently, he sued two of his nephews, alleging they were using his family name to sell "inferior" porn.
