Porn Industry Against New XXX Domain

Porn Industry Against New XXX Domain
The Free Speech Coalition released a news release petitioning for help in opposing the .xxx TLD proposal. The Free Speech Coalition is the adult entertainment industry’s professional organisation. Genelle Belmas, professor of communications law, who argued in her dissertation in favour of a xxx TLD says, “The side that does not like pornography argues that if you give it its own domain you’re legitimizing the porn. And the pornographers don’t like it because they say it ‘ghettoizes’ the porn.” The Executive Director of the FSC is quoted as saying what the adult industry refers to as “ghettoizing,” is “making adult entertainment an easy target for anti-industry extremists and government intrusion.” Other concerns are the cost of registering domain names ($60/year/domain) and that the TLD could be made “mandatory and subject to trans-Internet filtering that could effectively eliminate much of the adult content currently available on the Web.”
