TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (CBS) There's one less phony college orgy porno video on the Internet (a single tear) -- the "Big Rattler 77" tape that claimed to feature eight Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University students having an orgy on campus will no longer be available online.*

The university and RK Netmedia Inc, an operator of sexually explicit web sites, reached a settlement Wednesday preventing the company from displaying the video, which shows the FAMU logo and school colors, reported the school's website.

RK Netmedia Inc. apologized and acknowledged that the people in the video were not students and that the video was not filmed on campus, reports AZ Central. As part of the settlement of a lawsuit filed March 16, RK Netmedia Inc. has agreed to pay FAMU $105,000 to fully fund two scholarships and pay $15,000 for attorney fees, while also promising to make a good faith effort to prevent anyone else from displaying the video.

FAMU President James H. Ammons said in a release, "The resolution of this case represents a firm commitment by FAMU and its Board of Trustees to preserve the good name and reputation of this university for its students, alumni and the people of this great state of Florida."

FAMU filed the complaint in U.S. District Court after discovering the sexually explicit video with references to the university on the website Daredorm.com. The university is pleased that an amicable resolution was reached, said FAMU's website.

*Since we're talking about the Internet, about three minutes of googling will likely lead you another site hosting it.
