HBO is taking action against porn website PornHub for a breach of copyright after scenes from popular show Game of Thrones appeared on the website.

According to HBO, several scenes from the fantasy drama series -- which is known for pushing the boundaries with its nudity, sex and violence -- were uploaded to the pornographic website, in addition to parodies of porn stars imitating characters such as Lord Varys (Conleth Hill), Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), reports usmagazine.com.
