    YNOT – The adult entertainment industry certainly is no stranger to the use of “child protection” as a pretext to impose unnecessary regulations while engaging in direct attacks on the civil liberties of its members. But governments are not the only serial abusers of this hypocritical tactic. ICM Registry also uses “child protection” as one of the fundamental reasons why a dot-xxx sTLD is needed. The registrar-hopeful even used the specter of child protection ...

    Article Preview Now that the Child Online Protection Act (“COPA”) has been declared unconstitutional again by the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, it is time to revisit the issue of age verification, children,1 and adult materials.Now that the Child Online Protection Act (“COPA”) has been declared unconstitutional again by the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, it is time to revisit the issue of age verification, children,1 and adult materials. While no self-respecting adult Webmaster would argue that children should have a right to view erotica, opinions are mixed regarding the actions Webmasters should take to accomplish this laudable goal.


    Plenty of free explicit material exists on the Web, even today, with the purveyors justifying such content under the theory that it is the parents’ primary obligation to monitor their children’s Internet usage.

Many people in the adult industry, including several of my colleagues, have fixated on §513 of Title V of the bill, which is the upcoming appointment of twenty five Assistant United States Attorneys (AUSA) to the Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section of the Criminal Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, whose primary focus ...

    "…[W]e reject the concept that a commercial purpose is shown merely by a one-time posting to an Internet newsgroup. Posting photographs on an Internet newsgroup is not dissimilar from posting photographs on a cork bulletin board…there must be some other evidence, e.g., some indication that the photographs are intended for sale or are intended as advertisements for future sales."

    Adult webmasters should note that in California there is a lesser penalty for posting minors on the net even if it is not done for commercial purpose.LEGAL BRIEFS

I have seen recently that "non-nude" websites are becoming more and more popular. I was thinking about starting one.
