US-Based Porn Websites Face New Record-Keeping Requirement


Porn movie and magazine producers in the US are required to maintain records proving that all performers are of legal age. A new rule from the Department of Justice intends to extend that requirement to secondary porn producers, such as websites that re-publish pornographic photos. It appears as if the real rationale for the move is not to protect the underage, but to impose a burden on porn websites -- or rather, porn sites based in the US. As with other attempts by the government to regulate online porn, the existence of foreign websites calls into question the efficacy of this new rule. Wired News has the story.
