Must read


“After a thorough review, Visa will reinstate acceptance privileges for MindGeek sites that offer professionally produced adult studio content subject to requirements designed to ensure compliance with the law.”

Mastercard, Visa and Discover cut payments to Pornhub (and other MindGeek properties) a few weeks ago New York Times The article pointed out how lax application of the site’s policy led to the spread of illegal content on the site. The article noted that by breaking its rules, Pornhub essentially monetized videos containing assault and violence, child exploitation, revenge porn and other similar content. Credit card companies have said they are temporarily banning investigating the allegations.

In a previous statement provided Pornhub told The Associated Press that the allegation that it allows the sexual exploitation of children on its website was “irresponsible and patently false.” Nonetheless, it stopped allowing unverified users to upload videos and banned users from uploading content in response to the backlash. It also purged all unverified content from the platform, which resulted in suppression from anywhere between 6 and 9 million videos. It’s not clear at this point whether Mastercard and Discover plan to follow suit and relax their ban on MindGeek-owned websites.
