Adult-Themed Websites and Surfers Take Double Hit

The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

Webmasters whose websites deal with adult content may soon have to start policing the ages of the models and performers who appear in content on their website, even if they did not generate or solicit the content – indeed even if the content is several years old or was acquired third- or fourth-hand. Or stolen.

A new proposed Federal record-keeping regulation would require that, as with live performances, webmasters with adult content check the ages of those involved and keep age records for all material which appears on their website.


Predicts adult entertainment industry attorney Eric Bernstein, “There are going to be a lot of people who go out of business, and a lot of people who fill the gap and go into business. You’ll see fewer and fewer people buying content from others unless they literally get the records. You’ll see new production and new content coming out of this.”

Which may not be a bad thing.

Bernstein also predicts that those websites which rely primarily on stolen adult content, mostly those who offer it for free, may also disappear.

Which also may not be a bad thing. Stealing is stealing, after all.

Says an adult website webmaster whose name is, I kid you not, Jim McAnally, “People are pretty freaked out.” McAnally added (again, I kid you not) “This will affect people from top to bottom.”

In a related story, a new report out by Delta Consulting, and sponsored by PixAlert, indicates that 90% of the larger companies in the United States are policing whether adult content is being accessed from the workplace, and that such incidences result in an employee being dismissed in nearly half of the cases.

 

Almost makes you wish that you were living someplace where you can’t be fired for searching porn, doesn’t it?
